One Pastor Kelechi Vitalis Anozie has been arraigned in court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Enugu Command.

 

Anozie was arraigned before Justice I.M Buba of the Federal High Court sitting in Enugu, alongside three others who are currently at large, including (Mr. Azubuike Ifeanyi Bright, Mrs. Amarachi Blessing Iro and Mr. Kelechi Patrick Iro), on a seven-count charge bordering on money laundering.

 

The Pastor who is reportedly on America's Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Wanted List, was arrested by the Enugu Command of the EFCC at Owerri on March 10, 2022 following actionable intelligence received by the Commission.

 

He is accused of defrauding one F.F who lives in Illinois the sum of $135,800, and $47,000 from another American based in North Carolina.

Anozie pleaded not guilty to the charges when they were read to him, prompting the prosecution counsel, Michael Ani, to ask the Court for a date for the commencement of trial. The defendant’s counsel, E. Adams prayed the court to grant his client bail.

 

The defendant was granted bail in the sum of N10, 000,000 (Ten Million Naira) and one surety in like sum. The surety must be resident within the jurisdiction and own a property. He must also swear to an affidavit of means.
