Ejikme Oluchukwu, Nnamani Ikechukwu, Ibeh Kodili
Martins and Nwako Victoria Ifeoma sometime in
November 2012 in Enugu, Enugu State within the
jurisdiction of the Federal High Court of Nigeria,

thereby committed an offense contrary to Section

“That you Nwako Victoria Ifeoma and Uchenna
Nwako on or about October 18, 2012 in Enugu,
Enugu State within the jurisdiction of the Federal
High Court of Nigeria, concealed and disguised the

an unlawful activity by causing the said money to be

They however, pleaded not guilty, when the charges
were read to them. In view of their plea, the EFCC
counsel, M. A. Ekwu, requested for a date to be
fixed for trial of the accused persons to begin.
Defence counsel, A. Oyenkwere, however requested
bail for his clients, which was opposed by Ekwu.
Ekwu argued that only Ikechukwu who had
honoured the terms of the administrative bail
deserved bail.
Ikechukwu was thereafter granted
bail in the sum of N1,000,000 with one surety who
must be either a seasoned businessman that owns
a landed property with a C of O, or a civil servant of
Grade Level 15 or above.
The case was adjourned till May 13, 2015 for
consideration of the bail application of the other
accused persons, who were ordered to be
remanded in EFCC custody.
