Kwara TV GM Lands in Prison for Alleged Land Fraud
Justice Sikiru Oyinloye of Kwara State High Court, Ilorin, has ordered the remand of the general manager of Kwara State Television Authority, Alhaji Adulfatai Adewale Adebowale in Oke Kura Correctional Centre.
This is pending the determination of his bail application. The remand order followed his arraignment on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 on six-count charges bordering on corrupt practices by the Ilorin Zonal Office of the EFCC.
Trouble started for Adebowale when some staffs of the television station petitioned the EFCC, alleging that the station’s general manager sold 10 plots of land allocated to workers by the state government and converted the proceeds to his personal use.
The petitioners also alleged that the defendant used his influence to allocate a portion of the land to his daughter who is not a staff of the television station.
