Police have arrested and detained Fred Ajudua, in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, over alleged land fraud and forgery.

According to a report by SaharaReporters, Ajudua had been arrested and detained in Abuja “for three days now”.

SaharaReporters reported in 2022 how Ajudua, who was undergoing trial for allegedly defrauding a former Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Ishaya Bamaiyi, of $8.4million, was exposed in leaked phone calls fraternising with police authorities and some top magistrates.

According to the online newspaper, the most recent of Ajudua’s fraud trial was in December 2021 when a Lagos High Court ordered him to undergo a COVID-19 test at the laboratory of the Yaba Infectious Diseases Centre.

Justice Josephine Oyefeso gave the order following Ajudua’s failure to appear in court for his trial three consecutive times.
