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.
