According to the charge sheet, the suspect allegedly committed the offence between July and October 2017. The charge read: “That between July and October 2017 at Awka within the Judicial Division of the Federal High Court Awka you did by false pretence and with the intent to defraud, obtained from Hon Ndubuisi Nwobu the sum of N2.8 million paid into Zenith and Ecobank account numbers.

“You pretended that you will use the said amount to procure visa for Chukwunonso Anumba, Ikechukwu Nwinoh and Uchendu Jideofor to enable them to travel abroad which you knew to be false and there is no truth in it, thereby committed offence contrary to section 1(1)a and punishable under section 1(3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and other related offences Act 2006.”.

The reports said that, at the last sitting of the court, Onuchukwu pleaded not guilty of the offence when the charges were read to him. Although the defence counsel, N.A Onwuechi applied for bail on behalf of the accused, it was turned down by the presiding judge, Justice B. Quadri.

Justice Quadri directed that a written bail application be filed and the conditions perfected while the accused was remanded in custody.
