Alleged Crime: U.S. court dismisses complaint against Woodberry – Lawyer

Chicago lawyer Michael Nash for Olalekan Ponle in the court of United States of America, has disclosed the grounds for the dismissal of the complaints against his Nigerian client.

Nigeria’s Mr Ponle, otherwise known as Woodberry, is reported to be facing charges bordering on wire fraud conspiracy at a US District Court sitting in Illinois.

This followed after he was arrested June 10 at the United Arab Emirate.

Fraud totalling $15.2 million, according to complaint against Mr Woodberry, an unnamed Chicago company was tricked into sending the wire transfers.

According to prosecutors, Corporate entities in Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, New York and California among others were also numbered as victims of the fraud by Woodberry.
