A suspected fraudster, Julian Ndubueze Ezeji is currently cooling his heels in the holding facility of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, following his arrest for allegedly swindling one Onyeka Okoye of the sum of N81,250,000 (Eighty One Million, Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira only) in a phony oil transaction.
Ezeji, 62, native of Ibeme, Isiala-Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State fraudulently presented himself as a petroleum dealer and approached Okoye to supply his company, Initial Energy Nigeria Limited, petroleum products to the tune of N81,250,000 (Eighty One Million, Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira) with a promise to remit the money into the complainant’s company account. He however failed to honour the promise since April, 2014 nor make a refund.
The suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
