The member representing Nwangele State Constituency in the Imo State House of Assembly Hon.

In charge No. OW/570/2013, the accused persons pleaded not guilty to the charge and were later granted bail.

Ironically, when contacted, the 1st accused person, Mr. Onuegbu said that it was the said legislator and the legislator’s agents which include the 2nd accused person that defrauded him of the said sum and that he had all the documents to back his claim.

He further stated that the legislator who did not show up in court as complainant on the day the accused persons were arraigned, only used the police to intimidate, incarcerate and charge him to court.

Meanwhile, the matter has been adjourned to 16th January 2013 for hearing.
