Lawer And Pastor Remanded For Faking Will Of Dead Chief...

Five persons have been remanded at the medium prison facility in Ogwashi-Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State, over their role in the alleged forgery of the will of Chief Bernard Ogbolumani.


The accused include a popular Asaba-based legal practitioner, Emeka Okonkwo, and a priest of the Anglican Church, Rev. Samuel Azuka Ogbolumani, the deceased’s son.


Others are Chijindu Iloba Obanya, aka Jindu, Edozie Nwabuoku and Emeka Eseokwu.
In suit FHC/ASB/9c/2017 between the Inspector-General of Police and the defendants, Okonkwo and others are facing a seven-count charge of conspiracy and forgery before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Asaba.


They, however, pleaded not guilty to all the charges when they were read to them.

After listening to the arguments of the prosecution counsel, Silas Onele, and defence counsel, A. Nwaka, Justice Abang ordered that the defendants be remanded in prison custody, pending the determination of their bail application.


They were arraigned after a forensic investigation to ascertain the validity or otherwise of the testamentary instrument/will of the late Chief B.O.I. Ogbolumani, which was suspected to have been forged, following complaints by some children of the deceased.

Justice Abang, while handing down the remand order, declared that the case would be given accelerated hearing as soon as it commences trial on October 23, 2017, the next adjourned date.

The judge further stated that the bail application by the counsel to the defendant could be filed before the court proceeds on its annual vacation for determination.

That was how one lawyer sold my uncle's land he bought a week before he died. Good thing he told his son. The boy now told the mum. The boy now somehow got the documents from the lawyer's son before he gave them to the person he sold it for.

I can's wait to see that idiot rot in jail.
