Two Indians, Sahil Sharma and Pranjal Singh, have been arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Lagos Zonal.
They were arraigned before Justice Rilwan Aikawa of the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Their offences border on alleged illegal dealing in petroleum products.
According to the EFCC, they were arraigned separately after they were arrested by officers of the Nigerian Navy Ship, NNS Nguru, aboard a vessel, MV Bount, containing 45.9metric tonnes of AGO on January 31, 2020.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that for defrauding 194 widows to the tune of N781,800.00, Ramat Mohammed (alias Gaddafi), has been sentenced to 16 years imprisonment.
The sentence was read by Justice Umaru Fadawu of the Borno state high court. The convicted was an ex-Borno state judiciary officer.
Mohammed was arraigned on two count-charges bordering on obtaining by false pretence and advance fee fraud and other fraud-related offences.
He was alleged to have forged and sold a Food Collection Card, in the name of a non-governmental organisation, to the widows, to the tune of N781,800,000, without delivering any food.
Legit.ng had also reported that the EFCC said it was not involved in the arrest of popular Nigerian Instagram celebrity Raymond Igbalodely popularly known as Hushpuppi.
The disclosure was made by the chairman of the anti-graft agency, Ibrahim Magu.
Legit.ng recalls that Hushpuppi was arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) alongside his colleagues by International Police (Interpol) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for alleged fraud.
The EFCC boss said the anti-graft agency is not all about arrest and prosecution of internet fraudsters but also involved in rehabilitating the suspects.
