DECLARED ‘WANTED’! FMR STERLING BANK DIRECTOR, LAGOS PRINCE WANTED OVER STEALING 250,000 HECTARES
A special offence court has ordered the arrest of a former Sterling Bank director, Yemi Idowu, and a popular
socialite, Prince Waheed Gbadamosi Eletu-Odibo.
The information made available indicated that the duo are facing the wrath of the law for collaboratively and intentionally stealing another person’s property.
According to the charge report as submitted to Justice Sherifat Solebo of the Special Offences Court, which resulted in the bench warrant for the arrest, Idowu and Prince Eletu-Odibo were allegedly accused of conspiracy, stealing, and unlawful conversion of landed property belonging to Ononenyi Patrick Okonkwo.
The latter reportedly owned over 250,000 hectares of land that ldowu and Gbadamosi allegedly adopted as their own properties and sold off, sometime between 2013 and 2016. The plots of land in question are reportedly located around in Eti Osa Local Government Area of Lagos, around Crystal Road, Osapa Village.
Aside from this, Yemi ldowu and Waheed Gbadamosi were also accused of ignoring court summon.
The drama began when the two counter-charge the EFCC of breaching their fundamental humum rights in the process of filing charges againct them.
Interestingly, EFCC revealed that the court already ruled against them and that there was no violation of human rights. The court reportedly went so far as to demand that they make themselves available and at the behest of Justice Solebo and her Court. Evidently, neither Yemi ldowu nor Prince Waheed Gbadamosi showed up, hence the bench warrant declaring them wanted.
