Alaba Alakija and Oyinkansola Alakija were arraigned for conspiracy and document forgery.

Yesterday, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) brought Mr. Alaba Alakija and Oyinkansola Alakija, a legal practitioner, before the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja. They were arraigned on two counts of conspiring and using a false document titled “Vesting Deed by Dr. Omodele Alakija and Mr. Afolabi Alakija.”

The anti-graft agency alleges that the defendants conspired to commit a felony using false documents, contrary to sections 409 and 364 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011. Specifically, the charges relate to financial gains sought from a property at No. 10 Keffi Street, South-West, Ikoyi, Lagos.

According to the particulars of the charges, the defendants purportedly conspired to use a false document titled “Vesting Deed by Dr. Omodele Alakija and Mr. Afolabi Alakija,” allegedly made by the deceased executors of the estate of the late Sir Ademola Alakija, in 2015.

The second count pertains to using a false document for the property at 10 Keffi Street, South West, Ikoyi, Lagos, contrary to Section 364 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

These offenses are said to have occurred in 2015 concerning a property belonging to Late Sir Adeyemo Alakija at 10 Keffi Street, South West Ikoyi, Lagos. The trial judge granted Mr. Alaba Alakija a bail bond of N10 million with two sureties.

Both defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges. While Mr. Alakija appeared in court, Oyinkansola Alakija, who was reportedly at large according to the information sheet, was also present and pleaded not guilty. The case was adjourned to May 20 and 28 for further proceedings.
