Bad Guy Caught After Taking A Lady’s N4.5m For Fake Marriage


Some people just don’t want to work but want to enjoy all the good things of life. A house built a sinking sand will only last for a short time, soon your fraud will be exposed and your life disorganized.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has arraigned a bad guy, Amadi Jude, before Justice Emmanuel Obile of the Federal High Court in Calabar, Cross River State, on a 12-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence.

According to the EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, “Amadi who goes by different pseudo names – Richard Smith, Mike Anderson, Richard Darwin, Jackson Miller, and Morgan Abela, is alleged to have collected N4,544,000 from a woman and promised to marry her.”

Count one reads: “That you, Amadi Jude Junior (alias Richard smith, Mike Anderson, Richard Darwin, Jackson Miller, Morgan Abela) ‘m’, John Ikechukwu Efughi (at large), and Farouk (at large), between May 2014 and January 2015 in Calabar, Cross River State, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court did conspire among yourselves to commit felony with it: obtaining money by false pretence and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 8 (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006 and punishable under section 1 (3) of the same act.”

The woman is a Swedish national. When the charges were read, Amadi pleaded not guilty to all.
