A Kaduna High Court has denied bail to a man accused of duping a retired Major General of thousands of dollars.
Yusha’u Mohammed Kebbe is being arraigned by the EFCC on an eight count charge of criminal conspiracy and breach of trust, to which he has pleaded not guilty.
Mr Kebbe said the money was mutually agreed for investment in real estate
The complainant alleged that in 2006, while in Sudan on United Nations Military Operations, the defendant who is a childhood friend convinced him to invest in projects he was handling.
The complainant said he found through enquiries that the money was diverted by the defendant for personal use, but counsel to Yushau Mohammed said it was not true.
The defendant said there was a mutual agreement for the money to be invested in real estate, and the properties are there to show.
The Prosecuting counsel declined comments.
The case has been adjourned to Monday, 2nd December for hearing of the bail application.
