Police charge Lebanese firm, four others with forgery


Federal High Court, Lagos

The police have arraigned a Lebanese firm, M. El-Kalil & Sons Properties Limited, and four others before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos over alleged forgery.

The four other defendants in the suit marked FHC/L/152C/21 are: Francis Uzoaru, Ngozi Giwa-Amu, Obinna Chima and Frank Harden Limited.

It was learnt that the defendants’ arraignment earlier scheduled for October 4, 2021 before Justice Daniel Osiagor was adjourned owing to the absence of the trial judge said to be on an official assignment in Abuja.

The arraignment of the defendants on one count of fraud had been rescheduled for October 18, 2021.

The charge read, “That you Francis I. Uzoaru, 58 years old of No 23/25 Martins Street, Balogun, Lagos, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Frank Harden Ltd; Ngozi Giwa-Amu, 58 years old of No. 247 Moshood Abiola Way, Ijora, Lagos, Company Secretary of M.
