Jero Nwoze, a 47-year-old woman, appeared before an Igbosere Magistrate’s Court in Lagos, yesterday, over alleged forgery of a letter purportedly written by an Assistant Inspector General of Police to obtain 33,000 litres of fuel.
Nwoze, whose address was not given, is facing a two-count charge of forgery and impersonation.
The prosecutor, Inspector Abbas Abayomi, told the court that the defendant committed the offences in January at MRS Oil Nigeria Plc, at 8, McCarthy Street, Lagos.
He said the defendant forged a letter purportedly signed by DCP Peter Tadefe, on behalf of the AIG of Police, C Department Annex, Lagos.
Abayomi said the letter was written with the letter head paper of the Inspector General of Police and was addressed to the Managing Director of MRS Oil Nigeria Plc, McCarthy Street, Lagos. The prosecutor said Nwoze, presented the said letter to MRS to fraudulently obtain 33,000 litres of petrol.
He said the defendant was arrested when the company notified AIG office to confirm the letter’s authenticity, only to find out that there was no such written order. The offences contravened Sections 363 (1) and 380 (2) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
Magistrate Abimbola Komolafe granted her N500,000 bail with two sureties in like sum.
She said the sureties must be gainfully employed, must be resident in Lagos and must show evidence of tax payment to Lagos State Government and have their addresses verified.
She adjourned the case till April 3 for further hearing.
