Court jails Dangote ex-manager, two others for $32,000 insurance fraud

A Lagos State High Court in Ikeja, presided by Justice S. S. Ogunsanya has on Monday, convicted Raymond Akanolu, a former General Manager, Dangote Industries Limited, Mojisola Aladejobi and Balogun Omololu Alaba.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged them with conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretence.

According to the EFCC, the trio, in October 2014, conspired to defraud Dangote Industries Limited of the sum of $32,000.

They inflated the premium for the renewal of insurance policy cover for a Hawker Aircraft with registration No. 5N-DGN.

The offence is contrary to section 323 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, No. 11 of 2011.

Akanolu, Aladejobi and Alaba pleaded “not guilty” to the charges.
