The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday arraigned one Onoja Osita Kingsley, a Prison Officer, before Justice A.V. Agishir of the Federal High Court, Enugu on three counts of stealing, possession of fraudulent document and forgery to the tune of N3.9 million.

The accused, a Prison Assistant with the Nigeria Prisons Service, allegedly orchestrated the fraudulent transfer of the sum of N132,900,000.00 from six customers’ accounts with a new generation bank.

Three N3.9 million was transferred into the account of one Uchenna Eze, which Onoja had opened with forged documents at the Olu Obasanjo Road branch of Access Bank Plc, in Port Harcourt, River State.  He subsequently withdrew the sum of N140,000.00 from the account

He was arrested on the 12th of January 2015 in Enugu, Enugu State where he had gone to withdraw the balance of the stolen money.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against him.

Justice Agishir adjourned the matter to October 28, 2015 for hearing of bail application and remanded the accused in EFCC custody.
