The Port Harcourt Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned a Dutch couple Peiter Borremans and Nkechi Borremans alongside Lagon Trade Limited for an alleged $330,000 fraud involving a tanker vessel

They were brought before Justice E.A Obile of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Tuesday.

EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren said in a statement that the suspects were arraigned on two- count of conspiracy and obtaining by false pretences.

They pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Justice Obile adjourned the matter till March 31, 2021 and remanded the defendants in EFCC custody.

A petitioner alleged that his company, Jackkyson Multi Services Limited and Alot General services Limited  offered to buy tanker vessel from Lagon Trade Limited $1,100,000 and made a part payment of $330,000.

“The defendants allegedly vanished into thin air after collecting the money and all efforts to get a refund or delivery of the  vessel proved abortive,” the petitioner alleged.
