An Account Director with the Federal Ministry of Education, Matthew Inabo has been re-arraigned before a Federal High Court in Abuja for his alleged involvement in diverting about N45million part of funds meant for the Federal Government’s Home Grown School Feeding and Health Programme (HGSFHP).

Inabo pleaded not guilty when a 24-count amended charge, dated October 12, 2020, filed by Aminu Alilu on behalf of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) was read to him on Wednesday.

He was alleged to have fraudulently altered cheques and made false representations to defraud the government through the HGSFHP of the Federal Ministry of Education.

Inabo was said to have committed the alleged offenses while he served as the Head of Accounts Section of the HGSFHP in 2007.

Although the lead prosecution lawyer, Alilu applied that the defendant be remanded pending the conclusion of trial, Justice Inyang Ekwo acceded to the request by defense lawyer, Abiodun Olusanya that Inabo remain on the bail earlier granted him.

Justice Ekwo ruled that Inabo could only be allowed to continue to enjoy the earlier bail if he deposits his current international passport with the court.

The judge adjourned till December 7 for commencement of trial.
