Pastor Arraigned Over Issuance Of dud Cheques Of $1.6m – Court

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has presented two witnesses in the trial of an oil marketer and pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Ayodeji Oluokun.

Oluokun was arraigned before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo on two counts bordering on the issuance of dud cheques to the tune of $1.6m.

According to the EFCC, the defendant approached the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of GOSL Nigeria Limited, Emmanuel Ekpeyong, for loans of $1m and $666,666 to enable him to carry out operational activities in his company’s oil field in Bayelsa State and assured the complainant that he would repay the money within a year.

The defendan was alleged to have issued two post-dated Standard Chartered Bank Nigeria Limited cheques on June 26, 2014, for the sums of $1m and $666,666, but when the cheques were presented for payment, they were returned due to insufficient funds in the account of the drawer.
