Woman Defrauds Victims Of N179m, Uses N139m For Sport Betting, N1m To Pay Tithe by johnpablo541(m): 11:21am On Jul 21, 2020
A woman, Nkechi Mercy Ikogwe alongside two companies, Elites Finance Investment Limited and Efinc Global Investment Limited, were on Monday arraigned before Justice E.A. Obile of the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State over alleged N179 million fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Port Harcourt’s Zonal office arraigned them on a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretence contrary to Section 1(1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act No. 14, 2006 and punishable under Section 1 (3) of the same Act.

The woman was said to have used the sum of N139,704,097 she allegedly defrauded subscribers to play sport betting and also paid tithe of N1 million to a church in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

One of the counts against the defendants read: “That you Nkechi Mercy Ikogwe, Elites Finance Investment Limited and Efinc Global Investment Limited sometime in 2019 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State within the jurisdiction of this honorable court with intent to defraud, obtained the sum of One Hundred and Seventy Nine Million, Three Hundred and Twenty Six Thousand, Three Hundred and Eighty Six Naira,Sixty Two Kobo (179,326,386.62) by inducing unsuspecting members of the public to invest with your companies: Elites Finance Investment Limited and Efinc Global Investment Limited, assuring them under a false pretence of making 15% interest on all investment made, a representation you knew to be false, and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 1(1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act No. 14, 2006 and punishable under Section 1 (3) of the same Act”.

The defendants pleaded “not guilty” when the charges were read to them.

In view of the plea by the defendants, prosecuting counsel, K.W. Chukwuma-Eneh prayed the court to fix a date for commencement of trial.

But counsel to the defendants, G.N. Godwins moved an oral application for the bail of the defendants which was opposed by the prosecution on the ground that the application must be in writing, and properly addressed to the court.

Justice Obile ordered that the 1st defendant, Ikogwe be remanded in prosecution’s custody and adjourned the matter till October 19,2020 for determination of the bail application.

Mercy ran into trouble when the commission received a report about the defendant and two others, accusing them of inducing their victims into participating in a fraudulent investment scheme with a fake promise of 15 per cent return on investment.

Over Fifteen Million Naira (N15,000,000.00) was paid by the unsuspecting ‘investors’ into the defendant’s accounts, Nkechi Mercy Ikogwe with account numbers 2087478165 domiciled in Zenith Bank and Miss Joy Okari Ibiala 2099253758 domiciled in UBA

Further investigation revealed that the defendant spent a total sum of N139,704,097 collected from subscribers to play sport betting and also paid tithe of N1m to a leading Pentecostal church in Port Harcourt.

This is why I'm scared of overly religious people...you defrauded someone and gave tithe from it?

Oh my God!
Is this what Christianity should be about!

I'm waiting for the Damnnnnn niggarrr to come to this thread.

Meanwhile

It's sad how she wasted 1M out of that money to pay tithe. I don't know about you, but for me, any money spent on tithe is a waste. Offering is included too. At least sport betting can get you some cash if you're lucky, but tithe and offering has no use. undecided

Nkechi Mercy Ikogwe.

I doubt if this is her true name. Since when did people of Igbo extraction begin to have pronounced claw like tribal scars on their faces.

This is fraud. A calculated attempt to smear a particular tribe

Gutter journalism...

Her pastor would be very proud. David Oyedepo, the man that said that if you don't pay your tithes, you would die!

She's simply obeying her pastor.

And the only way to spend that huge money is by given it to bookies .....chaaaai


The game plan is for her to make some winnings then use part of it to settle the 15% monthly ROI to her depositors...that is the same strategy most of the so called forex trading companies are also using !
