The Abuja Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Commission, EFCC, today July 12, 2021 arraigned a company, Glotech Resources Limited, before Justice E. Okpe of the FCT High Court, Apo, Abuja for offence bordering on issuance of dud cheque.

The charge reads, ‘that you Glotech Resources Limited, sometime in 2019 in Abuja, within the Judicial Division of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory did obtain credit from one Usman A. Muhammed in the sum of  N10,000,000.00 (Ten Million Naira) by means of a cheque which when presented within three months was returned on ground that there was no sufficient credit standing in the account for which the cheque was drawn and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 1(i)(b) of the Dishonored Cheques (Offences) Act, 2004 and punishable under Section 1 (i) (b) (ii) of the same Act.

Ugochukwu Okeke, a director of the company pleaded ‘not guilty’, in writing, to the charge. However the judge frowned that the plea was not written on the letter head of the company.

Prosecution Counsel Mariya Ujudud Shariff thereafter requested for a short date for commencement of trial. The court obliged the request and adjourned till July 16, 2021 for trial.
