Okada rider throws 3-month-old baby boy into river, remanded in prison

A whistleblower has landed into trouble for dishing out false information to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The suspect, Umoh Edem, was, Tuesday, arraigned before an Ikeja High Court, for allegedly giving false information about  N700 million pension and tax evasion fraud by a company.

The EFCC charged Edem with making false statement to a public officer.

EFCC counsel, Mr S.O. Daji told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Aug. 7, in Lagos.

Daji disclosed that the defendant provided false information to the EFCC about the involvement of a company, Starsonic/Sacvin Group of Nigeria, where he was an employee.

“The defendant, claimed that the management staff of the company was involved in a massive pension fraud, tax evasion and other fraudulent activities in the tune of N700 million,” he said.

He further said that the defendant intent on embarrassing the company, gave information he knew was false to the EFCC and Mrs Patience Kalu, a public officer.

According to Deji the offence contravened Section 96 (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

Edem, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The vacation Judge, Justice Hakeem Oshodi, ordered that the defendant be remanded in a correctional facility.

Oshodi also ordered the EFCC to return the case file to the registry for reassignment.
