141

GOERGE UBOHThe man, George Uboh who accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde of one thrillion Naira fraud was

actually an ex-inmate in the United States. George Ugbo was indicted in the USA in 1992, fueling accusations that the man may be a paid agent.

It has also emerged that Uboh (pictured),  is currently being tried by the EFCC for criminal conversion of property belonging to the Police Equipment Fund (PEF). He is due to open his defence on October 29.

This was as gathered by Elombah.com in the attached document.

A Senate committee has summoned the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Lamorde, to appear before it today over allegations that he diverted over N1 trillion being proceeds from corruption recovered by the anti-graft agency

The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions is reacting to a petition sent to the Upper House by one George Uboh, who claimed that part of the money diverted by the EFCC boss included the loot recovered from a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, and ex-Inspector-General of Police, Tafa Balogun.

Mr Uboh, the Chief Executive Officer of Panic Alert Security Systems, a security firm, in his petition dated July 31, 2015, accused Mr Lamorde of specific instances of under-remittance and non-disclosure of proceeds of corruption recovered from criminal suspects, including Balogun and Alamieyeseigha.

According to the EFCC charge sheet, Uboh is standing trial on three counts.

Count one reads: “That you, George Uboh, sometime in 2007 in Abuja, the judicial division of the high court of the Federal Capital Territory, being a servant in the employment of the Police Equipment Foundation, and in such capacity entrusted with certain property, to wit: six units of operational vehicles, did commit criminal breach of trust by selling one Toyota Hilux pick-up van through one Egbon Blessing, and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 314 of the penal code.”

The second count reads: “That you, George Uboh, sometime in 2007 in Abuja, the judicial division of the high court of the Federal Capital Territory, being a servant in the employment of the Police Equipment Foundation, and in such capacity entrusted with certain property, to wit: six units of operational vehicles, did commit criminal breach of trust by selling one Toyota Hilux pick-up vans to Muha Motors, and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 314 of the penal code.”

And the third count reads: “That you, George Uboh, sometime in 2007 in Abuja, the judicial division of the high court of the Federal Capital Territory, being a servant in the employment of the Police Equipment Foundation, and in such capacity entrusted with certain property, to wit: six units of operational vehicles, did commit criminal breach of trust by selling two units of Toyota Hilux pick-up vans, and therefore committed an offence punishable under section 314 of the penal code.”

He has also been invited by the Senate committee; and will be expected to appear before the lawmakers at Meeting Room 120 of the New Senate Building, National Assembly Complex, Abuja, by 10am on Wednesday, at the same time Lamorde is expected before the committee.

The fraud allegedly perpetrated by Larmode was said to have dated back to his days as the Director of Operations of the EFCC between 2003 and 2007; as well as an acting Chairman of the commission between June 2007 and May 2008, when the then chairman of the anti-graft agency, Mr. Nuhu Ribadu, was away for a course at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, Jos.

The petitioner, who alleged that the EFCC had not accounted for “offshore recoveries” and that “over half of the assets seized from suspects are not reflected in EFCC exhibit records,” promised the Senate that he would produce “overwhelming evidence” to back his claims against Lamorde.

He equally accused Lamorde of conspiring with some EFCC officers and external auditors “to operate and conceal a recovery account in the Central Bank of Nigeria and excluded the balances from your audited financial statements between 2005 and 2011”.
