Alukwu, who was a brother in-law of the complainant was blamed for acquiring the said amount by first claiming that his brother-in-law, Obu Nnamdi Patrick was dead and that his wife, Helen who is the sister to the complainant, was the complainant’s little girl all in bid to claim compensation on two plots of land at Ifo Layout, Abakpa Nike Enugu from Niger Delta Power Holding Company Ltd/NIPP, whose high tension wire passed through the grounds.

Investigation also revealed that when actual payment was to be made and in order to lay credence to being the bonafide beneficiary, Alukwu knowing that the properties was captured in the name of its true owner, Obu Nnamdi Patrick, further presented a sworn affidavit of change of name in his own name as being the same person as the complainant and even made his staff to confirm the change of name.

In his proof by means of Skype, the complainant expressed he was the legitimate owner of the land and as could be seen, he is alive not dead as was purportedly revealed by the complainant.
He similarly said that he never gave the respondent the power of attorney and deed of assignment of the land expressing that Alukwu was his in-law being a sibling to his (Patrick’s) spouse.

Later in his declaration, the Investigating officer, Collins Iheonunekwu gave a better insight into the discoveries of the Commission expressing that the litigant lied in court to
get a sworn affidavit guaranteeing a similar name as the complainant to get pay from George Nzei and Co, the company contracted by NDPHC/NIPP to assess and pay to recipients.
The case has been deferred to April 15, 2019 for continuation of trial.
