Ontario Oil MD, Ada Ugo-Ngali Slumps in Court As Judge Slams Guilty Verdict On Her..

There was mild drama in court on Friday when the Managing Director of Ontario Oil and Gas Limited, Mrs. Ada Ugo-Ngali, fainted at the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja after being convicted of N754m oil subsidy scam by the court.




Ugo-Ngali stood in the dock while Justice Lateefa Okunnu was delivering judgment in a N1.9bn subsidy scam trial in which she and three others were defendants.

The prosecuting counsel for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), had earlier informed the judge that the offence carried a seven-year jail term and urged the judge to impose the maximum sentence.She suddenly slumped as the judge was about to pronounce the sentence.


Before the judge could pronounce the sentence, Ugo-Ngali passed out.

As the lawyers in court and her loved ones rushed to aid, Justice Okunnu, noting the state of things, adjourned the case and reserved her pronouncement on the sentence till January 16.

The convict was eventually carried out of the courtroom by her lawyers and loved ones into a waiting black jeep which sped out of the court premises.As she regained consciousness, Ugo-Ngali was panting loudly while her lawyers frantically called for medical personnel and an ambulance to take her to the hospital.


Ontario Oil and Gas Limited; its Chairman, Mr. Walter Wagbatsoma; Ngo-Ngali; and an official of the Petroleum Products Price and Regulatory Agency, Mr. Babafemi Fakuade, had been arraigned by the EFCC on August 1, 2013.

The EFCC, in the eight counts pressed against them, alleged that they were involved in a N1.9bn fuel subsidy scam.
Pronouncing her judgement on Friday, Justice Okunnu found Wagbatsoma and Ngo-Ngali guilty, holding that they defrauded the Federal Government to the tune of N754m in oil subsidy transactions totalling N1.7bn.


The judge, however, discharged and acquitted Fakuade, holding that the charge of forgery brought against him was not sustainable.
“The case against the third defendant is that he helped in forging the Shore Quality Certificate; what I see before me is that he only signed the document while acting in his capacity as an PPRA official.
“It is not right in criminal cases to infer guilt without concrete evidence, there is no proof that he was aware that the documents were false.
“The prosecution have not been able to prove the case of forgery against the third defendant,” Justice Okunnu held, freeing Fakuade.


In finding Wagbatsoma and Ngo-Ngali guilty, the judge held, “The defendants defrauded the Federal Government of N340m in the third quarter of 2010 and N414m in the fourth quarter of 2010.
“According to a forensic audit by Akintola Williams Delloitte, the defendants did not remit an excess of N754million to the Federal Government.


“The first defendant knowingly received the sum in excess of what the fourth defendant (Ontario Oil and Gas Limited) was entitled to.


“In my opinion, he contributed to the false pretence.”
Justice Okunnu further held, “The second defendant is the MD of the company, she is the alter – ego of the fourth defendant and was aware of the going-ons of the company.”


After pronouncing his client guilty, Ngo-Ngali’s lawyer, Mr. E.D. Onyeke urged Justice Okunnu to temper justice with mercy.
“The second defendant has health challenges, in the course of the trial she has had cause to visit doctors abroad to take care of her health issues as the health care system in Nigeria is poor.

“As the MD, she is an employer of labour whose workers depend on her managerial abilities, her workers will suffer more than necessary especially in this period of recession,” Onyeke pleaded.
“It is our humble plea that court grants her a custodial sentence starting from the day she was arraigned,” he added.
Responding, however, the prosecutor, Jacobs, said, “The minimum sentence of the offences which the convicts have been convicted is seven years.
“A custodial sentence will be sending a wrong signal to the public that the rich cannot go to prison and will be a hindrance to our fight against corruption.
“There is also no medical report regarding the alleged ill health of the defendant and the prison has medical facilities, if they can provide for the poor, they can provide for the rich.”‎

A custodial sentence?Wow never heard of that before!
Why is it that they all become suddenly sick when it gets to court?May God grant her quick recovery so that she can get this behind her In Jesus Name!

I don't have a single pity for looters especially women.
Call it women hating on women. Na you sabi.
It pains me more because a woman is supposed to be soft,motherly,loving and builds not a thief.

If she is guilty,sorry for her.
Some of y'all will start saying "leaving judgement for God".
Please don't be stupid. Not today.

"If they can provide for the poor, they can provide for the rich" - lol.

These are part of the people that benefitted from the scam called subsidy. Now that it has been removed, the poor masses are impoverished.

I know her fainting is all stunts. If the judge of the earth doesn't get you, the judge of heaven will.

Eminado Onimisi said...

When she is done fainting, the judge should pass a maximum sentence on her, no custodial sentence. Was she merciful to the poor masses who suffered the brunt of the scam?

Ralu M said...

Which stupid fainting? When she was enjoying stolen money and flying private jets all over the world shopping and catching trips why she no faint? Once they are indicted fainting starts to hungry them.
Infact there should be a law that states any body in trial for stolen funds should under any circumstances be taken out of the country for treatment.

The system was weak and she made the most of it. She's a beneficiary of a dysfunctional system. Anyone in her shoes could have done the same. In the then Nigeria, she was a heroine. Her only misgiving is that Power Changed Hands.

They should all live and face their repercussions. Wish all these greedy politicians be sentenced to life imprisonment

BEDS AND ROSES said...

And this is someone's mother.
And the funny thing is these people are already rich before they dabble into these atrocious crimes. They can afford all the luxurys of life. But I guess that is not enough. They must provide for all their generations unborn at the detriment of a nation.

Madam Patience name is not on the list? Shocking.
