Two students of the Benue State Polytechnic have found themselves languishing in hot soup after defrauding a man of a huge sum.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday, June 7, 2016, arraigned the duo of James Ogwuche Alex and Oklewu Ene Gina before Justice B.O Quadri of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The two suspects were arraigned on a 2-count charge of conspiracy and obtaining by false pretence to the tune of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira only (N250, 000).
The petitioner, Professor Ndubuisi Eye, alleged that the suspects who are both students of Benue State Polytechnic hoodwinked him through an e-mail from a purported old friend by name Engineer Bartholomew requesting him to pay Two hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N250, 000) to an ccount number which he did.
The case is still being tried.
