Enugu businessman docked for criminal beer transaction

LAGOS, (CAJ News) – A businessman, Samuel Sunday Ovute, has been arraigned at the State High Court 11 in Enugu for allegedly issuing a dud cheque worth N1,662 million.

The owner of Obuegu and Sons Enterprises, has appeared on a two count charge bothering on issuance of dud cheques and obtaining by false pretence.

A petitioner alleged that sometime around April 2015, Ovute, a business man who allegedly deals in liquor fraudulently, and with intent to defraud, issued Fidelity bank cheques to the tune of N914 000 and 915 700 respectively, being payment for liquor supplied to him by the petitioner.

The cheques were however returned due to insufficient fund in the accused person’s account and that all efforts made to recover the said amount from the accused proved abortive and instead of repaying the said monies, he went ahead to acquire properties/goods, opened a new shop and continues his business somewhere within Enugu metropolis.

The case has been adjourned to September 26-27 for accelerated hearing.
