Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the detention of Suleiman Dabo, the former representative of Zaria Constituency in the Kaduna State House of Assembly, at Kuje Correctional Centre.

This order is in effect until a decision is reached on his bail request

Justice James Omotosho issued the directive on Monday after the police arraigned Dabo on seven counts, alleging fraud amounting to N30 million.

Dabo and his company, Ohman International Venture Ltd., were arraigned as the first and second defendants in the case marked FHC/ABJ/CR/363/2021.

In the first count, the former lawmaker and his company are alleged to have conspired in October and November 2017 to fraudulently obtain N30 million by pretense from Mrs. Folashade S. Mojeolaoluwa.

In the second count, Dabo and the company are accused of defrauding Mojeolaoluwa of N30 million in October and November 2017 through a GTBank account registered under the name of Ohman International Venture Limited

The charge asserts that the defendants, under the pretense of selling a scrap vessel ship identified as ADNAN 101, carried out the act by presenting themselves to Mojeolaoluwa as the legitimate owners of the said scrap ship.
