“The duo will be docked before a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Jabi, for offences bordering on criminal breach of trust, obtaining by false pretence and abuse of office,” an EFCC statement issued yesterday in Abuja said.

“Gital and Abba allegedly conspired and defrauded one Chief Duru Mike Ejiogu, Managing Director of Visioni and Strauss Nigeria Limited to the tune of N60m on the pretext that the said sum would be used to facilitate the change of Land Use in respect of Plot No: 523, Cadastral Zone BOO Kukwaba District from Passive Recreation to Residential,” the statement added.
