Amadi told him that he would like to connect him with Alhaji for good business but asked him to call David Adeboye whom he claimed was the manager of the company that produces cow medicine.

The petitioner further alleged that upon calling Adeboye, he sent him an account number in which he paid four hundred and ninety thousand Naira in order to be a cow medicine distributor.

During investigations, operatives of the commission discovered that Amadi whose real name is Chibuike Ogbonna is the head of a syndicate involving Michael Agun, Osaikuiwomwan and Vicent Odia.

Further investigations revealed that Odia Vincent plays the role of a dubious native doctor, parading fettish objects and charms with which they dupe unsuspecting members of the public.

The suspects will soon be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.

In a previous report by us, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) accused John Binns of BCL Solicitors of blocking moves by the agency to interrogate Diezani Alison-Madueke, immediate past minister of petroleum resources, in the United Kingdom.

The EFCC said the lawyer refused to allow the commission’s team of investigators, led by Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa, to meet with Diezani in the UK earlier in March this year.
