A prison officer, Mallam Abdullahi Garba, on Wednesday, identified former Mrs Rosulu Idowu Oluronke, registrar to Justice Olubunmi Oyewole, as one who assisted a one-time Lagos socialite, Fred Ajudua, to defraud a former Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Ishaya Bamaiyi (retd) to the tune of $330,000.
In his testimony before Justice Lateef Lawal-Akapo, Abdullahi claimed that the defendant (Rosulu) visited General Bamaiyi and Ajudua in prison three times between October and November 2004. Led in evidence by counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Seidu Atteh, the witness explained that he, as a prison officer, met the defendant at the Kirikiri Maximum Prison when she came to visit Ajudua, Bamaiyi and Alumile Adedeji a.k.a. Ade Bendel
During Monday’s proceedings, Bamaiyi had told the court that when the defendant (Rosulu) visited the prison for the 3rd time, $330,000 (33 bundles of US$100 bills) which was kept in a red ‘Ghana-Must-Go’ bag, was handed over to her, precisely on November 20, 2004, and Ajudua allegedly sent his boy, Jonathan, to assist in counting and carried the money out of the prison.
