He was brought before Justice E. A. Obile by the Port Harcourt zonal office of the EFCC on 23 counts bordering on forgery and obtaining by false pretences.

George, through his company, Bravem Service Limited, while posing as an employee of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, allegedly obtained N37m from his victims on the pretext of supplying them with two million barrels of Bonny Light crude.

The defendant, who was arraigned alongside his company, Bravem Services Limited, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Based on the defendant’s plea, the prosecuting counsel, N. A. Dodo, urged the court to fix a date for the commencement of trial.

But the defence counsel, N. A. Obiecheton, prayed the court for a short adjournment to enable her to file a bail application for the defendant.

Justice Obile, however, ordered that the defendant be remanded in the Port Harcourt Correctional Centre, while the matter was adjourned till April 7, 2020, for the commencement of trial. Punch
