Court Remands Fake EFCC’s Employment Officer in Prison

Court remands fake EFCC?s employment officer in prison

Justice J.K. Omotosho of the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State has remanded Bisong James Oyen, a fake employment officer of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in prison custody.

Oyen was arraigned by the EFCC, Port Harcourt’s Zonal Office on Thursday on a two-count charge bordering on forgery and obtaining money by false pretence contrary to Section 1 (2) (c) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act CAP M17 of the Revised Edition (Laws of the Federation of Nigeria) 2007, and punishable under Section 1 (2) of the same Act.

One of the count charges read: “That you, Bisong James Oyen, on or about 11th December, 2018 at Port Harcourt, Rivers State within the jurisdiction of this honourable Court did forge Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Appointment letter and delivered same to Talbort Young for employment with intent that it may be acted upon as genuine, a pretext which you knew to be false and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 1 (2) (c) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act CAP M17 of the Revised Edition (Laws of the Federation of Nigeria) 2007, and punishable under section 1 (2) of the same Act”.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges when read to him.

In view of his plea, Prosecution Counsel, Esin-Otu Ebipade urged the court to fix a date for the commencement of hearing. The defendant was not represented by any Counsel.

Justice Omotosho adjourned the matter to June 18, 2019 for hearing and ordered that the defendant be remanded in prison custody.

Oyen got into troubles when a petitioner alleged that, sometimes in April 2018, he logged into the EFCC’s web address, in a bid to apply for a job but could not get through the application. However, he allegedly received a call from one Alex (Kalu Patrick Ikechukwu), now at large, that he should send his document to an email address: [email protected] and pay some money into an account number of one of the new generation banks.

The petitioner allegedly got an assurance, after paying the money, that he would receive an appointment letter that would qualify him for training by the EFCC. After waiting for a while without any communication from the EFCC, he reported the matter for investigations and the results showed that Oyen was neither a bonafide employment officer of the EFCC nor authorized to receive any payment from any member of the public on behalf of the Commission.

In the same vein, Kelvin Ogbonna was arraigned before Justice J. K Omotosho on a two-count charge bordering on false pretences.

One of the count charges read: “That you, Kelvin Ogbonna on or about 12th February 2019, in Port Harcourt within the jurisdiction of this honourable court had in your possession (your email address: [email protected] and [email protected]) documents containing false pretence which you knew or ought to know contains false pretence and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 6 of the Advance Fee Fraud and other related offence Act 2006 and punishable under Section 1(3). He pleaded not guilty to the charges when read to him.

In view of his plea, Prosecuting Counsel, Esin-Otu Ebipade prayed the court to fix a date for commencement of trial. However, defense counsel, B. M Mgbamoka did not oppose the prayers of the prosecuting counsel nor sued for the bail of his client.

Justice Omotosho adjourned the matter to June 18, 2019 and ordered that the defendant be remanded in prison custody for commencement of trial.

Ogbonna’s troubles started when the EFCC acted on some intelligence concerning his alleged impersonation, possession of scam documents and internet fraud and arrested him accordingly. However, investigation showed that he was in possession of one apple iphone 6S and Hewlett Packard (HP) Pavilion Laptop, all of which contained false documents.

Upon interrogation, Ogbonna confessed that he was involved in internet fraud by using a fake FaceBook profile with the name Fredrick Keefer and Google hangout accounts with the usernames [email protected] and [email protected] to defraud his victims via scammed mails.

Air Jordan 1 High OG “Court Purple” Expected For 2020: First Look

Another dope colorway of the AJ1 is rumored to be on the way.

Jordan Brand has had an incredible first half of 2019 so far and heading into 2020, it appears as though Jumpman is looking to take a stranglehold on all of that momentum. In terms of silhouettes, the Air Jordan 1 High OG has easily been one of the brand’s most important and popular shoes which isn’t surprising considering just how classic it is. With a plethora of Jordan 1 colorways coming this year, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that there will be more coming in 2020 as well.

Thanks to the sneaker Instagram account @zsneakerheadsz, we now have a photoshop rendering of a colorway that is rumored for April of next year. The model is being referred to as “Court Purple” and features the classic Chicago color blocking except this time around, the overlays are purple. There is a black Nike swoosh and the side panels and toe box are all white. It is believed that this pair will retail for $160 USD.

There are no official details for this pair just yet so stay tuned for updates as they come along as we will be sure to bring them to you.

June 11, 2019 Kevin Durant Exits Game 5 With Right Calf Injury As He Limps Off The Court

Kevin Durant Exits Game 5 With Right Calf Injury As He Limps Off The Court

His opening was solid, but his leg just couldn’t stand the pressure.

It was his triumphant return to the court after sitting out the end of the Playoffs and the first four games of the Finals, and many questioned whether Kevin Durant was fully recovered from his injuries. During his Finals debut, Durant’s right leg gave out on him and he sat on the court for a moment before he stood up and walked with a limp. He was escorted to the locker room with the help of the Golden State Warriors Director of Sports Medicine, Rick Celebrini.

Joining Durant in the locker room were Warriors general manager Bob Myers and forward Andre Iguodala. The power forward’s strained right calf has been a concern for the Warriors who didn’t give Durant clearance to return to the court until Monday. It’s unquestionable that the Warriors being down 3 to 1 in the Finals was a contributing factor to his return, but it’s safe to say that they’ll have to continue on this series without Durant by their sides.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters before the game, “I don’t want to put too much of a burden on him. It’s been a while, we don’t know how it’s going to go, how it’s going to look, but just his mere presence makes a huge difference for us, so we’ll start him and play him in short bursts and see how he responds physically, see if his wind is OK and as the game goes, we’ll try to figure it out from there.”

Dwyane Wade tweeted his respect for Durant. “Even with all the things @KDTrey5 has done. This is the most fan(ed) out I’ve been,” Wade wrote. “He knew he wasn’t right but he wanted to be there for his brothers. That’s sports! That’s love!
