The EFCC, Enugu Zonal office on Wednesday 18th October, 2017 arraigned one Ezeja Joseph Chukwuemeka before Hon. Justice. I. B Gafai of the Federal High Court Awka, Anambra State on one count charge bordering on obtaining the sum of N750, 000.00 (Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira) under false pretence contrary to section 1(1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related offences Act N0 14 of 2006 and punishable under Section 1(3) of the same Act.
In a bizarre case of twisted fate, Ezeja Joseph Chukwuemeka, who had hitherto been a complainant against the petitioner is now facing trial for allegedly obtaining funds from the same man he had accused with a promise to thwart the ongoing investigation against him.

He had assured the petitioner whom he had earlier petitioned against (In a multi-million naira scam case) that he had a sister who is a PRO in EFCC who needed to be settled with the said sum of money. Unknown to him, his conversation and subsequent collection of the money at a beer palour was recorded by the petitioner who apparently wanted to get even.

He pleaded not guilty to the one count charge preferred against him prompting the prosecution counsel, Mela Musa Gwani to ask for a trial date and equally prayed the court to remind the accused in prison custody,

The accused who had no legal representation, as he claimed his lawyer was on his way to the court, however pleaded with the judge to grant him bail, but was told that bail could only be granted when it is legally filed and moved by a lawyer.

He was eventually remanded in prison custody pending the filling of his bail application and the case adjourned to 7th December, 2017.
