The suit filed against the former chairman of Lagos Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) and incumbent President, Nigerian Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), Mrs. Ifenyinwa Omowole & Co comes up for hearing today (Wednesday) at the Igbosere High Court, Lagos.
The Concerned ACTION Subscribers of Abaren Land-PenJewel had dragged Mr. Elumoye, Mrs. Omowole, and others before the court over a multi-million Naira fraud allegedly orchestrated by them on members of the union in the name of housing estate alongside Primewaters, even as the Wednesday session will be the second hearing on the case.
It may be recalled that the duo and their partners allegedly defrauded members of the Lagos NUJ council several millions of Naira and foreign dollars in the name of providing housing scheme for them and relatives who subscribed in the project.
The counsel handling the case, Barr. Olayinka Olujimi confirmed this, assuring that his team is prepared for the Wednesday court session.
He charged all members of ‘Action Subscribers’ and entire affected members of NUJ to turn out en masse for the hearing.
Meanwhile, the aggrieved stakeholders of the Mowe-Abaren Land at the weekend in Alausa-Ikeja, urged members whose money were misappropriated by Mr. Elumoye and Mrs. Omowole under the guise of the housing scheme to mobilise and attend the Alternative Dispute Resolutions at the Lagos High Court, Igbosere-Obalende with placards and later visit the ThisDay Newspapers and News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) management where the two lead fraudsters currently work.
In addition, the ‘Hall of shame’ issue is to be revisited on those responsible for the mismanagement of the funds at the February Congress.
