Forgery Scandal: Trio Accused of Embezzling $6.23M from CBN Using Buhari’s Signature

In a shocking revelation, Odoh Eric Ocheme, Adamu Abubakar, and Imam Abubakar are accused of orchestrating a grand fraud scheme by forging the signature of former President Muhammadu Buhari to siphon over six million US Dollars from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). Specialized investigators working on the case have urgently sought the placement of these individuals on the Interpol Red Notice.

DCP Eloho Okpoziakpo, Head of Operations at the Office of the Special Investigator, signed a letter requesting the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to take action against the trio. The letter outlines the involvement of Ocheme, a CBN employee evading authorities, and his accomplices, Adamu Abubakar and Imam Abubakar, both on the run.

The suspects are accused of fabricating documents using the former Nigerian leader’s name, resulting in the embezzlement of an estimated $6,230,000 from the CBN’s funds. The Federal High Court in Abuja has issued warrants for their arrest and filed charges against them.

Count six of the charges details the false pretense through which the accused obtained the substantial sum from the Central Bank. The urgency of the situation is emphasized, as the trio remains at large, posing a significant threat to financial integrity.

The letter also discloses that Odoh Eric Ocheme’s Nigerian International Passport No. B50082800 has been identified, along with certified true copies of warrants and court orders. The unfolding scandal raises questions about security measures within the CBN and highlights the need for swift and decisive action to apprehend those involved.
