Suleiman Gbajabiamila, a 63-year-old man, was arrested yesterday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He was charged with defrauding a UK-based Nigerian of N30 million in 2021 by posing as an estate agent.

Despite being remanded in Ikoyi Correctional Centre in October 2022, Gbajabiamila was released in December.

The case was adjourned until April 5, 2023.

However, drama ensued after the court proceeding as the EFCC arrested Gbajabiamila while he was trying to leave.

The victim accused the suspect of using the name and influence of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, to evade justice.”
