Screenshot (294)The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has declared a couple (picture inset) in Abuja wanted in connection with a case of criminal breach of trust, obtaining by false pretence and issuance of dud cheque to the tune of over one billion naira.

The EFCC gave the names of the couple as Harry Agbenu Austin, MD/CEO of Megarice Co-operative Society Nigeria Limited located at Glass Plaza, Block B1, FCDA Quarters, Kubwa, Abuja and his wife Mary Agbenu Austin, a director of Megarice.

According to a statement by the EFCC, the couple allegedly used their company, Megarice, in operating a Cooperative society of over 400 members whose deposit amounted to over N800million.

The couple promised the depositors a ten percent monthly interest on their investments, which never materialized. They were also accused of obtaining a loan of a million naira from a new generation bank purportedly for importation and distribution of rice, which they diverted for other purposes and also defaulted in repayment.

Giving a description of the couple, the statement described Henry, 39, as dark complexioned and hails from Ogbadibo Local Government Area of Benue State, while his wife, who is said to be 37-years-old, is Gbagyi, from Chikun LGA of Kaduna state.

“They speak Idoma, Gwari, English and Hausa language fluently”, the EFCC said. “Their last known address is No. 96 Road, House 14 Gwarimpa Estate, Abuja”.

The statement urged anyone with useful information on the whereabouts of the couple to contact any of the EFCC offices in Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Port Harcourt and Abuja or through these numbers 09-4604620, 070-26350721,070-26350722,070-26350723,070-6350724, 070-26350725 ; its e-mail address: info@efccnigeria.org or the nearest Police Station and other security agencies.
