Aliyu GebiThe member representing Bauchi Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon Aliyu Gebi, was on Wednesday arraigned before a Federal High Court in Abuja on a 13-count charge of issuing dud cheques worth over N125 million to one Usman Mustapha.

According to Sahara Reporters, the motion papers filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, stated one of the charges against the lawmaker thus:

“That you, Hon. Aliyu Gebi, being the owner and sole signatory of Craft Technology Ltd and Craft Technology Ltd on or about the 12/01/2012 at Abuja Judicial Division of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory did obtain credit by issuing a UBA Plc cheque No. 00091852 in the sum of N10,000.000.00 (Ten Million naira) only in favour of Musty Petroleum Ltd. which when presented within three months, was dishonored on the ground that there was insufficient fund in the account and thereby committed an offense punishable under section 1 (b) (I)  of the dishonored cheque (offences) Act, 2004 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria”.

However, the Rep member pleaded not guilty to the charges read against him, praying the court, through his counsel that he be admitted on bail.

The presiding judge, Justice Abba Mohammed, granted the accused bail on self-recognition and ordered that he submits his traveling documents with the EFFCC and report to their office whenever he was called upon.
