Four gunmen have stunned officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), after abducting an alleged serial fraudster and suspect in a case they are handling.

Spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren said in a statement that the suspect, Princewill Arinze Nwobodo (alias Aboki J. Brown) was abducted by the gunmen within the precincts of the Lagos High Court, Igbosere where he was to be arraigned before Justice Aishat Opesanwo on a 4-count charge bordering on obtaining $92,000 under false pretence.

The commission said Nwobodo had previously been arraigned in two separate courts in Lagos on fraud related charges.

“He was docked on October 25, 2013 before Justice Saliu Seidu of the Federal High Court, Lagos, on a 15-count charge bordering on forgery and obtaining under false pretence. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail. His inability to meet the bail conditions confined him to prison custody till Thursday, February 20.”

“In the second court, he was arraigned on November 20, 2013 before Justice Aishat Opesanwo alongside Katchy Okoye and Matthew Usong on a 12-count charge that borders on conspiracy and obtaining money under false pretence. They were granted bail but could not meet the bail terms,” said Wilson.

He also added that Nwobodo who was brought to court on Thursday from Ikoyi Prison was abducted by the gunmen from the Prison Warders who brought him to court.
