A Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Seigha Glasgow, has been charged to court with defrauding one Chief Henry Ojogho to the tune of N105,000,000.

According to court documents, Glasgow, in conjunction with Mohammed Alfa, through Eneni Maggreti Ltd, sometime in 2015, collected the amount under the pretext to supply construction equipment, which was never done.

It was revealed that Glasgow, while serving as a director of the NDDC, absconded from his duty post for two years after the former Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, accused him of acts of corruption.

The court papers, with charge number FHC/ABJ/CR/213/17, reads: “Seigha Glasgow Eneni Maggreti Ltd and one Mohammed Alfa, now at large, sometime in the year 2015 in Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud, conspired among yourselves to wit: fraudulently obtain the sum of N105,000,000 from Chief Henry Ojogho under the guise that you will supply him with some construction equipment and thereby committed an offence under Section 8 of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Related Offences Act CAP A6 LFN2010.
