EFCC Prosecutes Travel Agent Over Dud Cheque

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arraigned Hassan Khalid, a travel agent and Himma Travel and Tours Limited, his company before a Kano State high court over a dud cheque.

Khalid was arraigned on a one count-charge of issuing a Zenith Bank Plc dud cheque worth N9,514,000.00 in favour of Universal Isma Umra Travels and Tour Limited.

According to the EFCC, the cheque with serial No. 61601644 was issued on January 27, 2012.

The EFCC told the court presided over by Justice Dije Aboki that the illicit act was only discovered when the cheque was presented to the bank, three months later but was

dishonoured on the grounds of insufficient funds in the account.

EFCC says that is an offence that contravenes Sections 1 (1) (a) and (b) (i) (ii) of dishonoured Cheque offences Act.

Although the accused pleaded not guilty to the allegation, he was remanded in EFCC.
