A woman identified as Princess Helen Abang has been detained in the Suleja Custodial Center for falsifying ownership of a two-storey building.

The woman who claimed to be the building owner in the Federal Capital Territory’s Wuse Zone 6 at Plot 70, Yaounde Street, also rented it out without the owner’s permission.

Mrs Elizabeth Ego Olejeme, the 80-year-old owner of the home, apparently learned of the trespass in 2006 and had been trying in vain to reclaim the assets, which consisted of six units of three-bedroom apartments.

Abang missed two court dates, and a bench warrant was issued for her arrest. The trespassing woman was finally apprehended on November 7, 2022, and arraigned at a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Zuba.

According to the prosecuting lawyer, Abdulrasheed Sidi;

“The accused rented other 5 flats of the 3-bedroom and used the proceeds to fight the widow from recovering the houses since 2006. She illegally trespassed on the property and has remained there till she was arrested on 7th November, 2022 and charged to Court. On 7th November when the case came up for hearing, she refused to show up , but was moving from office to office in order to frustrate the case.”

Abang, who was detained by the police after being arrested and brought before a judge on November 22, 2022, pled not guilty to the seven counts that Honourable Justice Ogbonnaya read out.
