Man docked over theft, forgery in Jos

A medical doctor, Patrick Nwosu, has dragged a 39-year-old a businessman, Marius Chuka, before a Plateau State High Court in Jos, for allegedly issuing two dud cheques.
 
The cheques (for N1 mil­lion and N200,000) dated July 24th and July 25th, 2013 were for the part pay­ment of loans Chuka col­lected from Nwosu.
 
Chuka, a resident of Bu­kuru Low Cost Housing Es­tate in Jos-Bukuru Metrop­olis, is facing a four-count charge of theft, cheating, forgery and issuance of dud cheques.
 
When the defendant ap­peared before Justice Chris­tine Dabu, he pleaded not guilty to the charges.
 
According to the pros­ecution Counsel, Napdul Kurfa, the defendant had consistently collected loans from Nwosu, said to be his friend.
 
He alleged that the ac­cused also visited the residence of the plaintiff and stole ATM cards with which he withdrew a total of N1.49 million at Access Bank, FCMB and ECO­BANK.
