The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arraigned one Wilson Eguridu, before an FCT High Court, Maitama, Abuja, on charges bordering on forgery, contrary to the provisions of Sections 362 and 366 of the Penal Code.
Eguridu, who is said to be a board member of the FCT Karate Association, is alleged to have forged an “Introduction Letter” to the British High Commission, as part of documents for the processing of visas for 14 persons,for a UK karate competition that was scheduled to take place in Dudley, in September 2014.
Upon receipt of a petition from the immigration office of the British High Commission, EFCC operatives swung into action. Investigations subsequently revealed that the letter of introduction which was purportedly signed by the director of Sports Development, Abuja, was fake. The case has been adjourned till October 8, 2015.
