The case between Eunisell Limited and its former employee, Kenneth Ndubuisi Amadi, over alleged N2.9billion fraud, has been adjourned to January 20 and 21, 2021 for continued trial.
Managing Director Eunisell Limited, Mr Chika Ikenga, last week, reaffirmed that a former employee of the company, Kenneth Ndubuisi Amadi, allegedly defrauded the company, by making customers pay Eunisell’s invoice through his personal account.
Amadi and his company, IDID Nigeria Limited, are being tried before the court on a five-count charge of conspiracy and fraud to the tune of N2.9 billion.
They are being tried by the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation.
Answering questions from Mr J. O. Akinwale, the new representative of Amadi, after senior lawyer, Mr Emeka Etieba (SAN), withdrew from further representing the ex-employee, the witness maintained that the former employee and first defendant, Mr. Amadi directed the customer, A-Z Petroleum to pay Eunisell’s money into an account nominated by him as affirmed by a letter written to the Nigerian Police by A-Z, and presented to the court by the defendant’s lawyer.
Ikenga also stated that the defendant, in a statement he made at the Police Station, said he was using the money to build his own company.
Recall that the AGF, in the charge filed against the businessman, had alleged that Amadi had received by false pretence and with an intent to defraud, obtained the sum of N2.9 billion belonging to Eunisell Limited from A-Z Petroleum Limited and Ammasco International Limited; making full and true entry thereof in the books and accounts; suppression of data in respect of the financial transfer to Eunisell Limited; and converting the same amount without authority to create sufficient deposits to promote the credibility of his own company, IDID Nigeria Limited.
