Anga and Generous were alleged to have in November 2013, deceived David Madison, into believing that they were employees of Gora Commanding Resources, a foreign exchange investment concern allegedly owned by Philemon Gora (who is still at large) and tricked their victim into expecting that his investment of five hundred thousand (N500, 000.00) would yield 10 percent interest on a monthly basis. He only received the 10 percent interest in the first month of his investment, while all the efforts to recover his money proved abortive.
