A Federal High Court in Abuja’s Central Business District took a step closer to resolving the case of Ibrahim Shu’aibu, a 50-year-old man accused of impersonating the Comptroller-General of Customs, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi, among other prominent figures in Nigeria.

Shu’aibu faces charges related to fraudulent activities, including duping several individuals by promising them job appointments in exchange for money. The court hearing, which commenced following Shu’aibu’s arrest by the Nigeria Customs Service Police Unit on January 29, 2024, saw the defendant enter a plea of not guilty to the nine-count charge brought against him.

Lead Counsel for the Nigeria Customs Service, Abidemi Adewumi-Aluko, presented the case against the accused. Presiding Judge, Justice Binta Nyako, adjourned the hearing until July 3, 2024, ordering that Shu’aibu be remanded in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Service until bail conditions are met.
