Wilson Ujuwaren, Abuja: The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arraigned a driver, Chinwoke Onyedinazu before Justice M. A. Liman of the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, for duping a Briton, Paul H., the sum of One Hundred and Eighty Two Thousand, Sixty Four Pounds, Ninety Nine Shillings (182, 064.99).
He was docked on a nine- count charge bordering on obtaining by false pretense.
Onyedinazu was a former driver of Mr. Paul while he was residing in Nigeria. In 2014, Onyedinazu reportedly proposed a fish farming business to the Briton and the latter accepted the proposal.

He later relocated to his country but kept faith with the business idea of his former driver and transferred the sum of 182,064.99 Pounds (equivalent of N60,000,000 at that time) to Onyedinazu.
However, the driver never pursued the business proposed to Henderson but diverted the money into his own use.
