Siblings arraigned for duping BDC operators


The police on Tuesday arraigned two siblings, David Okwuanalu and Graham Mike Okwuanalu, for allegedly swindling two Bureau De Change operators out of a total of $50,000.

The Okwuanalus were arraigned before the Federal High Court in Lagos on four counts bordering on conspiracy and fraud.

The police prosecuting counsel from the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department, Alagbon, Henry Obiazi, told the court that the defendants, with some persons still at large, committed the offence between August and December, 2016.

According to him, the siblings, who are in their 20s, made false pretences to their victims –Alhaji Mukaila Tella and Alhaji Abdullahi Seriki – that they wanted to change naira to US dollars.

Obiazi said while Tella was swindled out of $20,000, the second victim, Seriki, was defrauded of $30,000.

The prosecutor said the siblings acted contrary to and were liable to be punished under sections 1(a) and (3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, laws of the Federation of Nigeria  2006.

The Okwuanalu brothers, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

While adjourning till October 23 to take their bail applications, Justice Babs Kuewumi ordered that the siblings should be remanded in the prison custody.
