Remember Florence Esu (Queen of Aso) who made headlines in December following her engagement to her late bestfriend’s husband barely 4 months after she died while pregnant with their 3rd child? Well her supposed fiance ( Dr. Bright Echefu ) was arrested yesterday by the EFCC and Esu has taken to her Instagram page to announce that they’ve never been together and in fact, the engagement was all a prank (lol).
Yesterday, EFCC arraigned Dr. Bright Echefu before Justice S.C Amadi of the State High Court, Port Harcourt, Rivers on one-count charge bordering on Issuance of Dud Cheque and Obtaining by false pretense. He was said to have received computer accessories, laptops and stationeries which were delivered to his business premises at Touchville Hotel, Ada George Road, Port Harcourt. But after the supply, he issued a post dated UBA cheque of N1.165m with a further agreement to pay the balance of N150k on a later date.
However, the cheque was returned unpaid due to insufficient funds in his account. All efforts made to recover the money by the victim, did not yield results, hence his arrest.
Justice Amadi adjourned the matter to 25th January, 2016 for hearing of bail application and ordered that Echefu be remanded in prison custody.
