    ‘That he and his company had fraudulently swindled Moonluck Ventures of N21, 000,000.

    ‘… That Dr. Henry Akinduro has never come in contact with any representative of Moonluck Venture Ltd nor does he have any personal dealings or connection with the aforementioned company.
    That The Company, Total Grace Support Investment Ltd duly introduced and connected Moonluck Ventures Ltd and the property owner for them to transact in securing loan.
