EFCC Arraigns Two For Internet Scam by LivingHuman: 8:13pm On Feb 10, 2017
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned two suspects, Otojareri Governor Lucky (alias Sam Lewis) and Otorojareri President Mayor (alias John Jacob Carlson) before Justice J.K.Omotosho of the Federal High Court, sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on a 13-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence and sending of fraudulent messages to foreigners.

According to a statement released by the commission, the suspects were arrested in their hideout by operatives of the EFCC in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, based on intelligence reports.

The statement reads "The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday arraigned Otojareri Governor Lucky (alias Sam Lewis) and Otorojareri President Mayor (alias John Jacob Carlson) before Justice J.K.Omotosho of the Federal High Court, sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on a 13-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence and sending of fraudulent messages to foreigners.

Investigations revealed that the duo were arrested in their hideout by operatives of the EFCC in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, based on intelligence reports.

Specifically, the suspects were allegedly operating as a syndicate using false identities to deceive foreigners and receive fraudulent sums
through Moneygram and Western Union Money transfer from a branch of an old generation bank in Rumuomasi, Port Harcourt.

One count read: "You Otojareri Governor Lucky ‘m’ (a.k.a) Sam Lewis and Otojareri President Mayor ‘m’ on or about of 8 of May, 2016 at Port Harcourt, Rivers State within the jurisdiction of this honourable Court, did conspire among yourselves to commit felony to wit: obtaining money by false pretence and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 8 (a) and punishable under Section 1 (3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act, 2006".

Another count read that: "you Otojareri Governor Lucky, m, (a. K.a) Sam Lewis and Otojareri President Mayor ‘m’ on or about of 8th of May, 2016 at Port Harcourt, Rivers State within the jurisdiction of this Honourable court with intent to defraud did obtain the sum of $240.00 (USD) through MoneyGram from one John Carlson under the pretence that the said sum is an advance fee for the processing of loan from Norton Finance Loans, Springfield, United Kingdom, a pretext you knew to be false and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 1 (1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act 2006 and punishable under section 1 (3) of the said Act.

In view of their pleas, prosecution counsel, M.T. Iko asked the court for a trial date. However, the defence counsel, B.N. Erhire applied orally for bail

The matter was later adjourned to 3rd March, 2017 for hearing of bail applications while the accused persons were remanded in prison custody".

Now compare $240 to millions of $$$$$$$ stolen and no one is doing anything.. EFCC should be ashamed to even arraign them when they have never done like wise to any prominent politician. When they do that i would beginto throw respect at them. For now to hell with them. GEE FOR LIFE!!
