Deji Abiola, one of the sons of late businessman and Politician, Bashorun Kashimawo Olawale Abiola (MKO) has been charged before an Ikeja High court for allegedly obtaining money from a businessman without fulfilling the agreement contained in the transaction.

The charge against Abiola reads :
“Deji Abiola on or about 21st day of May 2008 at Lagos within Ikeja Judicial Division with intent to defraud knowingly and fraudulently converted the sum of N35,550,000 ( thirty five million five hundred and fifty thousand naira ) property of Hamza Babatunde Jose of Irede Property and Investment Company Limited”.

The alleged offence is punishable under section 390(8) (b) and (9) of the Criminal Code Law Cap c17 Vol.2 laws of Lagos State 2003 .

Gistmaster.com gathered that Deji, who is younger brother to  Kola Abiola, allegedly collected about 35.5 million Naira from Hamza Babajide Jose with the promise that he would supply him printing machines in 2008. The machines were supposed to be imported from Switzerland.

After what he considered the long wait for machines without seeing anything in place, Jose decided to report Deji Abiola to Nigeria's anti-graft agency, EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission).

When the case came up for hearing today,Deji could not take his plea of whether guilty or not guilty as his lawyer, A B Kasunmu (SAN) ask for time to look into the file. Justice Adeniyi Onigbanjo ordered that Deji should be remanded in EFCC custody. The case been adjourned till 30 June 2011.

It would be recalled that Deji was also arrested in 2009 by detectives from the Special Fraud Unit, Milverton Road, Ikoyi, based on the allegation that he defrauded Guaranty Trust Bank to the tune of about N177 Million (Naira).

He was said to have obtained a loan facility over goods he said he was importing into the country.

  1. Nigeria judiciary system is a disgrace to international community. This man should be bang in Prison for at least 20 years. Like father like son, he is a fraudster who gets away with muders with his Youruba popularity family friends in goverment. To kill corruption in Nigerian no linient for people like this. I think we should introduce excution with firing squad in Nigeria to deter Nigerian to be honest in there dealing with other.

  3. Recalled that MKO Abiola defraud Nigerian goverment of over 100 millions of Naira and flew abroad before returning back to the country in the early 70/80 ties. But justice prevail when he return back to politic, thinking that God has forgotten all the evil he did and he got his reward with his family at 1998 election. I thought that His sons will learn from their father mistake and live a decent life of honesty but obviously that is not the case. This man deserve at least 20years imprisonment for this fraudster. People like him give Nigerians a bad name abroad.
