Police arrest forex trader for fraud

By Michael Ofulue

Forex trader, Chukwulem Gospel is being investigated by the Inspector-General over internet business amounting to several millions of Nigeria.
Chukwulem, trading under the name, Eseka Chukwulem Gospel investment was arrested in Akure before he was transferred to Abuja following series of petitions to IGP over the matter.
According to police source, the accused was arrested on the June 29 following complaints lodged against him by persons who alleged him of duping them.
The Federal High Court sitting in Akure has ordered the immediate release of Eseka Chukwutem Gospel who was unlawfully detained by the Police.
The Hope Metro gathered that the court, presided over by Justice Folasade Olubanjo, had earlier ordered the police to release Chukwuetem, a forex trader, after his lawyer brought an application for the enforcement of his Fundamental Rights.
It was learnt that the court on July 10, granted an order for the immediate release of the applicant, but the police did not comply with the court order.
Operatives of the Special Anti-Scopion Squad, along FUTA North Gate in Akure, were said to have arrested Chukwutem Gospel on June 29, following an allegation that he traded in Forex business, in which some investors were reportedly duped.
Upon his arrest, the applicant’s friends were said to have engaged the services of two lawyers, Mr Olumide Ogele and Ademola Adewumi to enforce Chukwuetem’s fundamental rights
The lawyers had approached the court for the enforcement of the fundamental right of their client by a Motion on Notice and Motion Exparte, seeking his immediate release.
The Applicant, Gospel, was said to have been unlawfully arrested and detained by the police without a charge since June 29, 2020.
When the matter came up for hearing, counsel to the applicant informed the court that the Nigeria police in their usual way did not comply with the court order to release their client.
Ogele canvassed that the continuous stay in detention of the applicant was a flagrant violation of his rights.
He also maintained that his client had not committed any crime known to law which warranted the police to arrest and detain him indefinitely.
The counsel advised the Nigeria Police to comply with the court order by releasing his client from unlawful detention.
Justice F.A. Olubanjo, therefore, directed the counsel should contact his client and ensure he was brought to court on the next date of hearing.
However, when the case came up yesterday the prosecution of counsel, Mr Samuel Ogala and Mr Abitogun informed the court that IGP Muhammed Adamu had directed that the matter should be transferred to Abuja hence, the applicant had been taken to Abuja.

  1. Who’s this fucking owner of this blog, why don’t you guys just get your facts Right. How about where the police is asking for 100Million for bail of someone who didn’t commit any crime but just helping people. The police are bunch of thieves

  2. Mr Gospel Has been Giving us interest on our Capital for Few months now and has never defaulted not until the Special Anti-Scopion Squad, along FUTA North Gate in Akure Started their crafty works…Unfortunately he has been held Hostage for weeks,and we are concerned has investors,Which on so many times he has been extorted and taken to his bank to withdraw Huge funds meant for us to Thereselves,Thereby making payments to us delayed….. which on so many occasions it has been said by Neighboring homes,their Rate of Harassment is rather too high to both Youths and Elderly’s

  3. C. Gospel is not a fraudstar, pls kindly release him so as to pay my (our) money. He paid some on June 29 before he was arrested. Our money is saved with him and he promised to pay us as he had been doing….. According to him; He had a problem with his bank account and he already applied for his company under CAC in order to open a corporate account to ease the problems on the bank account.

  4. ECG is a good and strong man… The Nigerian police is a big mess; they should be scrapped and rebuilt

    Thank God will be well soon

  5. Gospel has been a GOD sent and a sincere Forex expert and many of those who wrote petition against him had benefited from him you can go check the record. He indeed professional trader all petition against him are baseless . Release him let him continue his normal business he assured everyone that invested of safety of their funds so why putting him under this assort and frustration.

  6. Gospel needs to be released, because his not a fraudster. He is a forex trader and his scheme is to help the finances of the people of the country, detaining him in police custody for 3weeks, is uncalled for, because it is again the law of the country.

    Justices must prevail.

  7. Those Investors who got arrested in the first place probably didn’t tell you how they have been benefiting from him each week for five months now.
    Please, Gospel is innocent. The police in akure only wanted to exploit him by keeping him locked up because they know how much is involved. This is just wickedness. Please he should released ASAP.

  8. Am an investor in ECG, I have more than 5million naira with the company currently, this petitioners are just being unnecessarily difficult, this company has really helped all their investors achieve greater financial upgrade for some months now and due to the bank issue that sprang up on 22nd June, he was very occupied that he couldn’t trade with the money we contributed, Gospel the CEO wrote to us expressly that there will be no ROI (Return on Investment)for that week and he is going to refund all investors their capital. The payment process started on Monday 29th July whereby some of my friends from some groups received their capital before the policemen arrested him.
    Please and please, Nigeria police should release Gospel our CEO for him to commence the bit by bit payment he promised us, most of us with down lines are really getting torments from our sub investors.

    Concerned Nigerians should please help us on this issue because the Police men wants to eat where they have not laboured
