  • Anambra monarch arraigned for election fraud




    A traditional ruler in the Ukwulu in Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State, Igwe Peter Uyanwa, has been arraigned for allegedly perpetrating an election fraud.

    The traditional ruler was arraigned on Wednesday before the Federal High Court in Akwa.

    In the charge sheet marked, FHC/AWK/C/79/18, the traditional ruler was accused of presenting a false election result in respect of Anaocha/Dunukofia/Njikoka federal constituency election conducted on December 7, 2014.

    According to the prosecution, traditional ruler, who was a candidate in the election, falsely declared himself the winner of the election.

    Our correspondent learnt that Uyanwa became a monarch after the election.

    One of the charges read,  ďThat you, Peter Anukwu Uyanwa, on the 7th day of December, 2014, within the judicial division of this honourable court, did make a forged document, knowing it to be false, or with intent that it may, in any way, be used or acted upon as genuine, that any person may, in the belief that it is genuine, be induced to pass judgment that you are the winner of the Peoples Democratic Party Federal /Senatorial Constituency Anaocha/Dunukofia/Njikoka election, and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 2 (c) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004.Ē

    The monarch, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

    The case was adjourned until October 31, 2018.
