The Kaduna Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arraigned one Hassan Umar Isa before Justice Z.B. Abubakar on one-count charge of obtaining by false pretence to the tune of N650,000.00 (Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira).

The charge read: “That you Hassan Umar Isa, trading under the name and style as AL- ARD Big Limited, on or about the 21st of January, 2014, in Kaduna, within the Judicial Division of this honourable court, with intent to defraud, obtained the sum of N650 00 (Six Hundred And Fifty Thousand Naira) only from Sanusi Abdullahi for a purported sale of land, situated at No, G18 Hayin Damina, Rigasa, Kaduna, a pretence you knew to be false and you thereby committed an offence contrary to 1(1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offence Act, 2006 and punishable under Section 1(3) of the same Act.”

The defendant pleaded not guilty, following which prosecuting counsel, J. A. Ojogbane, asked the court for a trial date and for the defendant to remanded in a Nigerian Correctional Service, facility.

Counsel to the defendant, Sule Shuaibu, however, pleaded with the court to grant his client bail to enable him prepare for his trial.

Justice Abubakar granted the defendant bail in the sum of N500,000.00 (Five Hundred Thousand Naira), and one surety in like sum, who must be a reputable person, resident within the jurisdiction of the court, must have a landed property which has to be verified by the state’s Land Registry.

The judge further ordered that the defendant be remanded in EFCC custody pending perfection of his bail conditions and adjourned the case till September 21, 2020 for commencement of trial.

Hassan ran into trouble for selling a land, situated at No. G18 Hayin Damina, Rigasa Kaduna, which does not belong to him to one Sanusi Abdullahi in the sum of N650,000.00 (Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira) Naira), and resisted all efforts to make him refund the money.
