The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Thursday arraigned Asabe Abdulkareem before Justice Y.N. Galadanci of the Kano State High Court, Kano on a two-count charge of conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretence to the tune of N3 million.
The complainant, Al-Amin Dabo, in November 2013, allegedly transferred $7000 into the company account of Mubaraq Abdulkareem, Century Path Nigeria Limited, for the importation of some cars from Canada into Nigeria.
The car types are Mercedes Benz C300, 2014 model, Mercedes Benz CLA 250, 2015 and Range Rover Vogue.
Mr. Dabo also allegedly paid another N3million into ISKA and Gas Petroleum Company account domiciled in a new generation bank for the Range Rover Vogue in February, 2014.
However, the accused person neither delivered the cars to the complainant nor refunded him.
Investigation revealed that the accused person is the mother of Mr. Abdulkareem (now at large), who is a director in both companies.
The accused person pleaded not guilty to the charges when they were read to her.
The prosecution counsel, S.H. Saád, therefore, asked for a trial date.
Consequently, Justice Galadanci adjourned to April 21 for hearing on the bail application.
