An indigene of Kwara State, Mohammed Gobir, and his company, Mondial Defence Systems Limited, were on Monday arraigned before an Ikeja High court for allegedly stealing N227 million from the State government.
Mohammed Gobir, 55, faces a five count charge bordering on stealing, forgery and dishonestly converting monies entrusted to him for the purchase of three units of Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC) by the Kwara State government preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC) before Justice Josephine Oyefeso.
Gobir, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Justice Oyefeso ordered the prosecution to serve the defence counsel with the necessary documents.
She thereafter adjourned the matter until September 13, 2018 for continuation of trial.
