Cry for help against EFCC cover up!
This is a public appeal from a man who felt cheated, calling on concerned stakeholders and authorities to come to his aid.
In his words:
I am Adeniyi Rabiu, I reside in United Kingdom. I travelled to Nigeria sometimes in April 2014 to invest in a landed property and i was defrauded N8,200,000 by Mr Jimi Aina and Mrs Atinuke Oguntade Awobajo (a very close family friend). I had incurred additional N4,000,000 on the three plots of land for fencing and gate, legal fee, assessment fee and logistics. I paid #8,200,000 into Mr Jimi’s account, he paid Mrs Atunike Oguntade undisclosed amount. Thereafter Mrs Atunike Oguntade was demanding #750,000 for her agency fee. The negotiation meeting between Myself, Mr Jimi, Mrs Atinuke Oguntade and her husband Mr Adedeji Oguntade was held at (Rtd) Justice Oguntade’s office 124A T.F. Kuboye Street Off Oniru New Market Road, Lekki Phase 1 Oceanside, Lagos. Mr Jimi is (Rtd) Justice Oguntade’s step son and he was in charge of all sales of (Rtd) Justice Oguntade’s properties and Personal assistant to Governor Ambode of Lagos State.
Am not in anyway trying to tarnish the names of both Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and Justice Oguntade (Rtd) . However, all documents i received were false inclusive of the purported Governor’s consent. I had given Mr Jimi and his partners in this organised illegal act enough time to address and correct their illegality which they had refused to address.
I consulted and instructed Barrister Mcdavies Amore (now a magistrate) to carry out following assignment instructions; write a petition to EFCC on my behalf, obtain confirmation of survey plan lodgement from surveyor general’s office Lagos, check governor consent progress with ministry of Lands Lagos and copy me all correspondences. I paid Barrister Mcdavies Amore and he failed to discharge the obligations for which he was saddled with instead he gave me a copy of false petition letter to Efcc thereafter given me impression he was communicating with Efcc. EFCC advised me to put in another petition because there was no record Barrister Mcdavies submitted any petition.
I petitioned EFCC myself, Mr Chris (Officer in charge) started well with the investigation by obtaining bank account statements of the suspects. Mr Chris confirmed to me Mr Jimi kept bulk of the money I paid into his account to himself, as he didn’t transfer the money to the said owner of the land Mrs Funmi Abiola. Following our telephone conversation on 20/10/2016. firstly, Mr Chris confirmed that (Rtd) Justice Oguntade issued receipt of purchase to Mrs Funmi Abiola. Secondly, Mr Chris said to me that all the agency vehicles had broken down, so he relies on public transportation which could hinder effective investigation to interrogate Mrs Funmi Abiola at her house. Unfortunately, Mr Chris didn’t hear what he wants to hear from me the investigation took another turn. I stopped calling Mr Chris and started sending emails but no response, I was forced to call his boss Mrs Akinronyeje to get an update and reported unprofessional conduct of Mr Chris. Mrs Akinronyeje said to me Mrs Funmi Abiola had travelled to U.K for medical and investigation had stopped until she is back early this year. I know is all cover up, so publicity on Mrs Funmi Abiola of number 05 Faramobi Ajike Street, Anthony Village Lagos and her whereabouts is very paramount. Am really frustrated and disappointed in EFCC.
My advice for Nigerians in diaspora is that they should be very careful about investing in Nigeria. The environment is not safe for investment and all people want is to suck the hell out of you.
