Earlier, Senator Barata, in a criminal complaint lodged before the Adamawa State Police Command on the 23rd November 2021, alleged that he had transferred the money through two bank accounts to the accused person as pre-arranged.
He alleged that the defendant, a staff of General Hospital Uba in Borno State, did not wholly invest the money in the specified business but diverted N15.5 million to his own personal use.
When arraigned in court, the defendant pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Inspector Iliya Akawu, urged the court to remand Abusufiyan in prison and adjourn the matter to enable the prosecution to complete the investigation.
Ruling on the prosecutor’s application, Magistrate Abdullahi Muhammed Digil ordered the police to go ahead with their investigation and make their case ready for hearing.
The judge remanded the defendant as prayed and adjourned the case to February 28, 2022.
