Nigeria: Four workers of Dangote Cement have faced criminal charges at the Ogun State High Court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for an alleged US$40,000 fraud. Adewale Dalmeida, Ibrahim Lawal, Afeez Olaniba and Lukman Adam were arraigned before the court on two counts of conspiracy and stealing, according to the Punch newspaper. The defendants allegedly diverted nine cement trucks, which were meant to be delivered to Togo. The EFCC alleges that the individuals used fake identity cards and truck number plates to carry out the misdemeanour. The defendants have pleaded not guilty to the charges. The case will now go to trial.
