Woman heartbroken as she sues her husband for allegedly defrauding her of N71m, court dismisses case



A suit filed by a woman, Mrs. Tega James against her husband, Mr. Lucky James, over allegations of fraud, has been dismissed at the Ikeja Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ogba, Lagos State.

Mrs. James had accused her husband of defrauding her of the substantial sum of N71 million (Seventy-One Million Naira).

Mr. Lucky James, aged 47, was arraigned before Chief Magistrate L.A. Owolabi of the Samuel Ilori Court in Ogba, Lagos State, on October 4, 2022.

The case gained significant attention due to the substantial amount involved and the nature of the allegations.

However, in a Certified True Copy of the judgment dated February 2, 2023, and made available to The Punch on Thursday, Justice Owolabi dismissed the case against Mr. Lucky James.

The dismissal was based on the fact that Mrs. Tega James, the plaintiff, had agreed to withdraw the case against her husband.

The judgment issued by Justice Owolabi read in part;

“This ruling is predicated on the application for the withdrawal of the charge by the complainant, James Amanda Tega.

“The prosecutor led the complainant in evidence to confirm her intention and whether she indeed intended to withdraw the complaint leading to this charge against the defendant. She confirmed on oath that she wants to withdraw the complainant leading to this charge.

“I have reviewed the uncontroverted oral evidence of James Amanda Tega and am satisfied that the complainant intends to withdraw the complaint leading to this charge against the defendant. Accordingly, charge number MIK/E/61/22 be and is hereby dismissed, dated this 2nd day of February 2023.”

As a result of the dismissal, the court has cleared Mr. Lucky James of the charges, and the case will not proceed any further.
