Veteran fraudster, Fred Ajudua is back to doing what he knows how to do best.

Just when many thought he had turned a new leaf by embracing a legitimate life and turning a ‘clergyman,’ the seemingly retired fraud kingpin got arrested by the Nigeria Police Force in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, for land fraud and forgery.

His arrest may not be unconnected to accusations of land grabbing by Akwukwu Igbo residents and those of Ogbe-Iyase quarters in Akwukwu-Igbo of Oshimili North Local government areas of Delta State.

Residents had claimed that some persons in the community were conniving to grant Ajudua power of attorney to sell their lands.

The residents at some point formed a protest group and pleaded with the state governor, Sheriff Oborevwori to assist in dissuading Ajudua from taking over their farmlands to avoid crisis and bloodshed in the community.

After seeing that the state government wasn’t doing their bidding, some of the protesters got a court injunction restraining Ajudua from entering some portions of land, specifically the ones situated at and known as Umusaigba Farmland by Enugu Atakpo Ibusa, behind Asaba airport.

Fred ignored the court injunction and has continued to trespass into the land using agents of a real estate development firm, Property World Africa Network (PWAN Plus). What is worse is that the firm has continued to advertise and sell some portions of land which is a subject matter of litigation to unsuspecting members of the public.

The aggrieved persons filed another motion and got another interim injunction restraining Ajudua and his agents from trespassing pending the determination of the motion on notice.

Reputed for glamourizing fraud in Nigeria dating back to the 80s, Fred Ajudua is to fraud, what Professor Wole Soyinka is to Literature in Nigeria.
