N52m Contract Fraud: Ikpeazu's men On the Run, as EFCC arrests Abia SEEDC Boss, Others


Abia State
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) has invited Mr Onyemaechi Chukwuemeka Evuka, the CEO of the CBN/South East Entrepreneurship Development Center (SEEDC) Program, and Mr Okechukwu Austin Emeh of Petmobel hotel Umuahia who has already reported to the Eastern regional office of the EFCC in Enugu, over  their involvement in the SEEDC N52m Contract Fraud committed against Phrenemos International Ltd.

It will be recall that Phrenemos International Ltd was awarded a contract to renovate and Upgrade the women Skills Acquisition Center for the CBN/South-East Entrepreneurship Development Center SEEDC program.

The contract which amounted to the sum of N52 million was completed by Phrenemos International Ltd, but Governor Ikpeazu's men, namely, Dr Eme Okoro the SSG, Mr Onyemaechi Chukwuemeka Evuka, and Mr Okechukwu Austin Emeh refused to pay the company which has already finished the job.

Instead, they went and impersonated the Phrenemos International LTD’s Board, forged the company’s Board resolution and through the assistant of one Miss Emuchay Glory of UBA PLC Factory road branch in Umuahia, who was the company’s account officer at that time, fraudulently manipulated the Phrenemos bank account with UBA, and carried out fraudulent withdrawals from the company account.

Meanwhile, in a bid to seek for withdrawal of the case from EFCC, ICPC and DSS, a special Assistant on media to governor Ikpeazu, Ikechukwu Iroha, yesterday called the CEO of Phrenemos International LTD, Engr Emma Uche Adimoha on phone, below is their phone conversation as been sent to us.

Iroha: The governor should Talk about it with u?

Engr Uche:  Why wont the governor talk about it?  I can not discuss with you on that.

Iroha:  If we invite u to govt house on behalf of the governor would u come?
