Wilson Uwujaren said that the Nwabuezes and Eze Ngozi were said part of a group which engaged in fraudulent acts, obtaining by false pretences and impersonation.
“The suspects’ arrest followed a petition from Austin Emuan, who is the Managing Director of Gothic-Len Consortium, alleging that one Miss Joy Ozioma (now at large), Nwabueze and others, sometime in 2011, defrauded him of N16. 9m under the pretext of awarding his company a contract for construction of a cottage hospital in Obagi community by Total Nigeria Limited,” part of Wilson’s statement read.
