Alleged N109bn Fraud: Court Returns Ex-Accountant General, Ahmed Idris, Others To Kuje Prison

Alleged N109bn Fraud: Court Returns Ex-Accountant General, Ahmed Idris, Others To Kuje Prison.

The former Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris has been ordered to be returned to Kuje prison till July 28. This order was given by Justice Jadesola Adeyemi-Ajayi of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court sitting at Maitama, on Wednesday. The Judge ordered his return to prison pending the delivery of a ruling on whether to admit him and his co-accused persons to bail or not. Following their arraignment by the anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on July 22, the former Accountant General applied that he be admitted to bail by the court to enable him prepare his defence in the 14-count criminal charges brought against him by the Federal Government.

At the Wednesday proceedings, Justice Adeyemi-Ajayi Ajayi after listening to arguments from both prosecution and defence Counsel announced that she will make her decision known on July 28.

The former Accountant General, alongside Godfrey Olusegun Akindele, Mohammed Kudu Usman and Gezawa Commodity Market and Exchange Limited were arraigned by EFCC on July 22 on a 14-count charge of stealing and criminal breach of trust to the tune of N109, 485,572,691.9

At the resumed hearing on Wednesday, counsel to the first defendant, Chief Chris Uche SAN, moved his client’s bail application praying for the order of the court to admit the former Accountant General to bail.

He argued that the charges are bailable offences adding that they are not capital offences.

He told the court that his client never abused any court process and has the necessary surety to stand for him, urging the court to grant him bail on liberal terms.

Also, counsel to the second defendant Mr. Peter Abalaka prayed the court to grant his client bail pending the trial of the charges.

He said the counter affidavit of the prosecution dwelled on sentiments and prejudices which do not have a place in the trial, urging the court to consider the bail application adding that his client is obedient and will not disobey court orders.

The counsel to the third defendant Mr Mohammed Ndayako argued that the entire offence is bailable and urged the court to do the needful and grant his client bail.

In his arguments, the prosecution counsel Mr Rotimi Jacobs SAN told the court that, the former Accountant General and others have committed a criminal breach of trust which is a serious offence that should not be granted bail.

He told the court to consider the nature, gravity and weight of the charges as they are sufficient enough to be refused bail.

He argued that the charge is a public offence which is equal to terrorism and genocide and should be handled with all seriousness adding that he is ready for the commencement of the trial.

Kid Cudi Says It Would Take A "Miracle" For Him & Kanye West To Be Friends Again

Kid Cudi Says It Would Take A “Miracle” For Him & Kanye West To Be Friends Again.

Kid Cudi says that it would take a “miracle’ for him to mend his friendship with Kanye West. Contrasting his beef with Ye to that of Drake’s, Cudi explained in a new interview with Esquire that he won’t be making amends anytime soon.

The Man on the Moon rapper explained:  “With all due respect, I’m not Drake, who’s about to take a picture with him next week and be friends again, and their beef is squashed. That’s not me. What I say, I mean. I will be done with you. It’s gonna take a motherfucking miracle for me and that man to be friends again. I don’t see it happening. He gon’ have to become a monk.”

“The twisted thing is that I love him, but I love you so much that I can kick you the fuck out of my life and be done with your ass. ’Cause you are not good for me,” he said, before quoting philosopher Samantha Jones. “I love myself more. I love myself more.”

“I didn’t love myself all them years you knew me,” he continued. “I love myself more now, bro. I love myself way more.”

While the two artists were once longtime friends and frequent collaborators, earlier this year, Cudi found himself pulled into West’s drama with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and her then-boyfriend, Pete Davidson. Things escalated when Cudi replaced West as the headliner at Rolling Loud, which resulted in fans throwing objects at Cudi throughout his performance until he stormed off stage. West later trolled Cudi over the incident on social media.

Elsewhere in the interview, Cudi reflects on aging in hip hop, his final conversation with the late Virgil Abloh, going to therapy, and more. Cudi’s next album, Entergalactic, is due out later this year.
