State Revokes License of Electronics Repairman

State officials on Thursday revoked the business license of a Studio City electronics repairman and technician who was imprisoned earlier for reneging on promises to install equipment and stealing customers’ property.

Uzoma Godfrey Ojogho, 32, had been convicted of 17 felonies relating to his business, Tower Communications, at 11440 Ventura Blvd., officials said. He was sentenced to six years in prison in October, 1991.

Ojogho was convicted of seven incidents of grand theft, five of unlawful diversion of funds, four of making false financial statements and one count of perjury.

Ojogho’s license was revoked because of the number of violations and his prior record of similar wrongdoings in San Diego, said Curt Augustine, deputy chief of the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Bureau of Electronic and Appliance Repair.

“He would take money to install satellite TV dishes, leave some pieces of equipment uninstalled, and never return” to the houses of his customers, who included ex-Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Don Drysdale, Augustine said.

He also used false information to get credit and loans, Augustine said.

Officials took more than a year to revoke the license because of administrative procedures involved in the revocation process, Augustine said. Only about 15 licenses are revoked by the state each year, he said.
