In a press release signed by the Head, Media and Publicity of the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwujaren, the suspect had presented a Deutsche Bank, ‘bank draft’ number 081758 in the sum of $19,930,900 (about N3.29 billion) purportedly drawn by Deutsche Bank in favour of Infinity Trust Savings and Loans Limited. This fraudulent act was made known to EFCC in a petition written by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), following the report received from Stanbic IBTC about the forged bank draft they refused to pay. Uwujaren said the suspect would be charged as soon as investigation was concluded Adeshola had earlier been arrested and prosecuted by EFCC for claiming to be an Assistant Commissioner of Police seconded by the commission to the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC), to cleanse the rot in the agency. He had, at another time, claimed to be the Head of the EFCC Chairman’s Monitoring Unit and was arraigned in court on a seven-count charge bordering on forgery, impersonation and obtaining by false pretence before Justice Usaini Baba Yusuf of the FCT High Court, Abuja.]]>
