Folorunsho Alakija Duped By Her Employee And Sister


An operative of EFCC, Ganiyu Wasiu, on Monday told an Ikeja Division of the Lagos High Court how one Vincent Ayewah, an employee of the Rose of Sharon Foundation, allegedly connived with his friends and siblings to forge the identity card of the foundation with different names to defraud the organization.

The Rose of Sharon is an organisation founded by Folorunsho Alakija to empower widows as well give scholarships, up to the university, for their children and orphans.

Vincent allegedly forged cheques of the Foundation's Stanbic IBTC Bank Account and got his sister, Miss Florence Ayewah and their friends to cash the forged cheques by presenting them with fake identity cards.

In the course of investigation it was discovered that Vincent used his position to enlist his family members as beneficiaries of the scheme.

Mr. Wasiu said “A search was conducted in the house and premises of the suspects including one Mr. George who is the maker of the forged identity cards. The forged identity cards and computer used were all recovered.” Mr. Ayewah is facing a two-count charge of conspiring with his siblings and friends to steal N3m.
