A 41-year-old housewife, Mrs Ifeoma Ofuegbu, who allegedly sold her husband’s house without his consent was on Wednesday arraigned in an FCT High Court, Jabi.

She, however, denied committing the offence, while the judge, Justice Vera Venda, ordered that she be remanded in Suleja Prisons, and adjourned the case until June 13, for the hearing of her bail application.

Ofuegbu was docked on charges bordering on cheating, criminal misappropriation and obtaining money by false pretext.

The prosecutor, Mrs Hadiza Esai, had told the court that the defendant allegedly sold the house situated at Dawaki area of the FCT for N25 million.

She said the alleged offences contravened Sections 320 and 308 of the Penal Code.

Her lawyer, Mr Chijioke Osuagwu, applied for her bail and argued that she remained innocent until proven otherwise.

“The motion is brought pursuant to Section 6(6), 35 and 36(5) and (6b) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Our motion for bail is also backed by Sections 158, 162, 165 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015.

“Our prayers are contained in the motion paper; this motion is supported by four paragraphs affidavit and we rely on all the paragraphs, especially paragraph three,” he said.

Osuagwu urged the court to exercise its discretion in granting the bail in favour of the applicant and drew the court’s attention to the deteriorating health of his client.

The prosecutor did not oppose the bail application, but said that a plea bargain discussion was already on with the defendant. (NAN)

    Wonders shall never end. Does she think her husband will not find out? It is impossible that her husband was starving her of money. Maybe she sold it to either build a house for her parents or her brothers. She should be interrogated to find out why she sold the house and the person who bought it and what connects them.

      @DB. Up to the point of selling the man’s house? If this is thoroughly investigated you will see that she sold her husband’s house to either build a house for her parents or her brothers.

    There is no smoke without fire, there are two sides to a story. No woman in her right senses will sell her husband’s house just like that.

    Honestly that house should belong to both husband and wife and NOT husband alone! Thank God I am a Canadian.
