Emmanuel Ighodaro was arraigned on 21-count charge before a Benin High Court alongside Anthony Owolabi, Quincy Atoghengbe, Raymond Ogieva and Oseremen Gabriel Ogbegbor for allegedly diverting funds belonging to the NMA.
The accused persons, who were executive members of the Edo NMA, were alleged to have committed the fraud between 2013 and 2014, but they pleaded not guilty to the charge.
They were accused to have conspired among themselves “to make a false entry in the audit report of the accounting year, 1st  August, 2013-31st July 2014 of the association by inserting anticipatory income in the report to cover a loan of N6 million yet to be received.”
The trial judge, Efe Ikponwmonba, granted them bail in the sum of N1 million each with a surety who must be gainfully employed with evidence of tax clearance, and adjourned the case to February 20, for hearing.
