The EFCC is prosecuting Gilmaska, the Executive Officer of Icon Media and Marketing Agency Ltd, for allegedly forging and issuing a dud cheque of N9 million to one Tayo Olugbemi in 2012.

It will be recalled that Justice Abubakar Umar of the FCT High Court in Maitama on Nov. 14 ordered that Gilmaska be remanded in EFCC custody till Nov. 26.

The judge gave the order after he withdrew the bail he granted Gilmaska because she failed on two occasions to appear in court for her trial.

At the resumed hearing, Umar said: “I do not agree with the accused when she said that she had no intentions to jump bail.

“She should have communicated to her counsel, informing him about the accident she claimed she was involved in.

“The last time you jumped bail and, even, your counsel could not give proper account of your whereabouts.

“And now neither your counsel nor your husband is in court. They know that you are in EFCC custody.

“So, even If the court decides to grant you bail now you don’t have anybody to take your bail.

“I will not grant you bail because I don’t have the guarantee that you will not jump bail.’’

Umar, therefore, adjourned the case to Dec. 19 for hearing.

Earlier, the EFCC counsel, Mr Sam Ugwuegulam, told the court that the case was slated for adoption of final written address but the accused’s counsel was not in court. (NAN)
