$11 million scam rocks Anambra Gaming Company

A scam of 11 million dollars is allegedly rocking the Anambra Gaming Company.
The Managing Director of Davitsglobal Group  Limited, Mr Vitalis Ezeonwumere stated this in a petition to the office of the Attorney General of the state, Mr Anali Chude.
The petition obtained by our correspondent in Awka, Anambra State, alleged that a nonexisting company was used to perpetrated  the scam.
Ezeonwumere  stated, "Our company through Anambra Internal Revenue Service bidded for
contract to collect gaming taxes on behalf of Anambra State in
September 2016 and January 2017.
"We wish to state that the award of contract on Gaming taxes eluded my
Company because due diligence was not executed by your revered office
and that of Anambra State Internal Revenue Service because:
 "The Memorandum of Understanding between Anambra State Government
and Global Gaming Company limited with your signature on it, is more
or less a worthless paper, fraudulent with the facts concealed to your
"Global Gaming Limited is not a duly registered company with
Corporate Affairs Commission as contained in the Memorandum of
"The only Global Gaming Company recognised by Corporate Affairs
Commission was registered on August 2016 with office at No 16, Awka
(113 Limca) Road Nkpor in Idemili North Local Government Area of
Anambra State.
"Draft Bill on Anambra State Gaming Law 2017 in favour of Anambra
State Gaming Company Ltd by Uju Meta Esq presently in your high
esteemed office is another negligence to due diligence primarily aimed
to incubate fraud and corruption.
He added,"There is nothing known to both our law and that of Corporate
Affairs Commission like Anambra State Gaming Company Limited that the
said purported Gaming Law 2017 intends to favour.
"The non existing Global Gaming Company. Ltd was used as special
purpose vehicle as contained in the Memorandum of Understanding to
create a nonexisting Anambra State Gaming Company Limited which
culminated to opening of fraudulent existing account with a new generation bank"( name withheld)
Ezeonwumere urged the Attorney General to use his good offices to investigate  11 million dollars allegedly paid into a certain account as result of the MOU signed by the state in respect of Gaming business in 2016.

Similarly Megwas & Associates, a gaming agency  in the state has  dragged the Anambra State  Gaming Company to a Federal High Court for fraud and forgery
A consultant with the agency, Mr  Chinedu Offomata said "The forgery, illegalities, and status of the company is a subject of litigation at federal high court Awka in suit No's. FHC/AWK/CS/184/2017.
Efforts to get the views of the Anambra State Commissioner for finance, Mr  Ifeatu Onejeme, who is one of the directors of Anambra Gaming Company Ltd did not yield any result as he didn't pick calls placed on his phone line nor reply a text message sent to him on the matter.
