The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Thursday arraigned Chandra Prakash Singh who is an Indian before Justice Nicholas Oweibo of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos on a seven-count charge bordering on stealing to the tune of over Two Hundred Thousand US Dollars.
This is contained in a Statement by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. Chandra Singh pleaded not guilty to the offence and in view of his plea, the prosecution counsel, B.B. Bala asked that the defendant be remanded and a date for trial.
However, counsel to the defendant, Efe Solomon Izokor appealed to the court for an oral application for bail.
Bala objected to the submission made by the defence, insisting that “a written bail application be brought before the court” to enable her to respond accordingly.
Justice Oweibo remanded the defendant in the correctional facility and adjourned the matter till June 27, 2023 for the commencement of trial.
