By Kingsley Nwezeh

The ongoing trial of Petro Union Oil and Gas Company Limited, Abayomi Kukoyi, Prince Kingsley Okpala, Prince Chidi Okpalaeze, and Prince Emmanuel Okpalaeze before Justice A.M. Liman of a Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos, on an amended 13-count charge bordering on conspiracy, obtaining by false pretence, attempt to steal, and forgery to the tune of £2,556,000,000 continued yesterday.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) presented its 7th witness at the trial.

The witness, Shamsudeen Abu Lili, a Senior Manager with the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC Maitama, Abuja, was led in evidence by prosecuting counsel, Mr. Rotimi Jacobs (SAN).

Shamsudeen told the court that the CAC received a request from the EFCC hinged on an investigation involving Petro Union Oil and Gas.

He said: “We had a request from the EFCC to provide Certified True Copies of documents with respect to Petro Union Oil and Gas.

“We responded and provided the documents relating to the registration of the company.”

He identified the documents.

Jacobs thereafter applied to tender the documents before the Court. No objection was raised by the defence team.

Subsequently, Justice Liman admitted in evidence the bundle of documents, which included the investigation activities letter of the EFCC, as well as CAC pre and post incorporation papers as Exhibit A-E.

The witness further confirmed that the company was incorporated on the 28th December 1979 with registration number 31157.

The case was thereafter adjourned till March 10, 2021 for continuation of trial.

It would be recalled that the EFCC, on January 27, 2021 re-arraigned the defendants before Justice Liman.

One of the counts reads: “That you, Petro Union Oil & Gas Company Limited, Abayomi Kukoyi, and Princess Gladys Okpalaeze (now at large) on or about 29th December 1994, at Lagos, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court fraudulently procured a Barclays Bank’s cheque dated 29th December 1994 in the sum of £2,556,000,000 (Two Billion Five Hundred and Fifty-Six Million Pounds) made payable to Gladstone Kukoyi & Associates, purporting the said cheque to be meant for foreign investment in the construction of three refineries and petrochemical complex in Nigeria, when you knew the said cheque to be unlawfully procured and you thereby committed an offence contrary to section 1(2)(a) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990 and punishable under the same section.”

They pleaded “not guilty” to the charges when they were read to them.

I Heard He Had His Pu.bic Hairs Put On His Face- 50 Cent Trolls Mayweather’s Hair Again

When it comes to trolling in the Hip Hop world, no one does it better than Hip Hop legend and business mogul 50 Cent as he is on the ‘neck’ of Floyd Mayweather again with his trolls.

50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson and Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has been in a very long ‘unsettled’ beef for a very long time now with both successful business men throwing shades at each other with the least opportunity.

But 50 Cent is way above Mayweather in trolls as he mostly makes the Boxing champ always feels uncomfortable on social media. Recall he started trolling Mayweather with his hair when the former welterweight Boxing champion made a public appearance with a heavy mustache could of months ago.

50 Cent in a post on social media posted the photo of his former best friend Mayweather with the heavy mustache trolling him that he took some hair from his ‘a$$’ and implanted it around his mouth.

The television guru couple of months ago wanted to settle the long beef with his former best friend in a boxing match after he threw a challenge to Mayweather of which Mayweather accepted the challenge for the boxing match.

But 50 Cent knowing what he was doing later called off the match 48 hours after Mayweather accepted the match saying the head of the ‘The Money Team’ can’t read two paragraphs of his best New Times Selling Book.

Well 50 Cent is back again trolling Mayweather about his hair when camera captured the Boxing champ with fully grown hair on his head during a pre-match brawl with YouTuber Jack Paul last night.

Floyd like you can’t show people my hair. LOL

WTF going on, on champ head… I heard he had his pubic hairs put on his face. Lol #bransoncognac#lecheminduroi
