By Abdul Gaffar Bello

ABUJA, NIGERIA (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned a former Deputy of Federal Inland Revenue (FIRS), Abumere Joseph Osagie and others before a Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja over N5 Million gratification from a University don.

Osagie and one Jamila Ojora were accused of conspiring and demanding the alleged sum as gratification from the Pro-chancellor of the institution – Base University, Senator Datti Ahmed.

‎The anti-graft agency opened trial Tuesday, with two witnesses, identified as Umar Dalhatu and Abdulkadir Saidu.

The witnesses according to the agency were led in evidence before Justice O. O. Goodluck.

Dalhatu and Saidu while being led in evidence by counsel to the EFCC, Joseph Uzor, as PW1 and PW2 respectively gave detailed account of how the accused persons allegedly conspired to obtain the sum.

However, the accused claimed the money was given to appreciate their services for “arranging tax assessment” for the university.
