The suspect Lukungu Musa, a lawyer working with FX Ogwada Advocates used this law firm to initiate a fictitious suit in the commercial court against Opio George claiming that he had sold plot 257, Block 917 to them in Munyonyo but had refused to hand over the land title.
They fraudulently used the Court system and obtained court orders and sold Opio’s land to a one Othieno Clement at Sh.150 million.
In this case, Lukungu Musa served as an attorney of the purported claimant Lutaaya Godfrey, who in the fraud process used a different name, Bwanika Deogratius.
It is when Othieno attempted to develop the land he had purchased that Opio George surfaced and revealed that he had never sold the land to anyone and had no information of any existing suit.
He made his submission to Commercial Court and reversed the entire process, Opio regained his land though Othieno who lost his money to the fraudsters.
