Along side her co-defendants in the charges which were the foundation’s Programme Manager and Country Director, Dahiru Saidu, and Prince Lawal Shoyode, respectively.
Isma’il, who is an investigator with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, while being led in evidence by Benjamin Manji, told the court that as part of investigations into the alleged fraud, a forensic examination was conducted on the Samsung phones of the defendants.
He said, “On the three contracts investigated as alleged by Nyeuro International Limited, the first one bordered on a purported contract to pay the sum of N45m into one Saidu Mukhtar Hospital Equipment account as directed by the defendant.
“The second purported contract was that Nyeuro was directed to pay into Tahiru Saidu Daura’s account the sum of N1.650m for the supply of a machine. But the investigation carried on revealed that no such contract was carried out.
“Also, Nyeuro International Limited was directed to supply white beans worth N66m, which was supplied to Complete Care and Aid Foundation’s store, to which the defendants acknowledged.”
The investigation, he said, further revealed that the amounts paid by contractors in the account of Mukhtar’s account domiciled in the U BA were used in paying other contractors that the foundation was indebted to.
The prosecution thereafter closed the case against the defendants.
