ICPC arraigns Court Registrar over alleged fraudulent activities
The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has arraigned a Deputy Chief Registrar of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Nkem Apollonia Mba, for alleged involvement in fraudulent activities.
The Deputy Chief Registrar was arraigned on a three-count charge before the state Federal High Court 12, Justice Leteem Nyordee, for offences bordering on abuse of office and corrupt demand of gratification by a public officer.
One of the counts revealed that Mba received a kickback of N500,000 through her bank account from the purchase of Automotive Gas Oil popularly known as diesel and other products.
She however argued that the money was her two percent entitlement according to Order 16 of the Admiralty Jurisdiction (Procedure Rule) 2011.
The court heard that her offence contravened Section 10 and 19 of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000, and is punishable under relevant sections of the same Act.
Mba pleaded “Not Guilty” when the charge was read to her. Consequently, her counsel, S. Somiari applied for bail praying the court to grant her bail on liberal terms.
The bail application was not opposed by the prosecuting counsel, Agada Akogwu. The trial judge, in granting the prayers, admitted her to bail in the sum of N500,000 with a surety who must have landed property in Port Harcourt.
Justice Nyordee further ruled that the accused must deposit her international passport with the court Registrar. The case was then adjourned to 26th July for commencement of trial.
