One of the charges read:

“That you, Chinwe Odoemelam (“F”), being the director of Flourish Global Services International Limited, on or about the 8th day of September 2015 at Umuahia within the jurisdiction of this honourable court with intent to defraud did obtain the sum of N4,500,000.00 from Mr. Kalu Okorie which money you caused to be spent on the construction of a three bedroom bungalow under the false pretence that you are contracted and authorised by the Nigerian Immigration Service to construct residential buildings for its staff at Sapele in Delta State of Nigeria.

A pretence which you knew to be false and thereby committed an offence, contrary to Section 1 (1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006 and punishable under Section 1 (3) of the same Act”.

She pleaded “not guilty” to the charges, following which prosecuting counsel, Nwandu Ukoha, prayed the court for a trial date and for her to be remanded in a correctional facility in the state, while defence counsel, Mbanaso Esq., made an application for her bail.

The matter was adjourned till December 11, 2020, for hearing on the bail application, while the defendant was remanded in Umuahia Medium Correctional facility.
