Four men bag two years imprisonment in Abuja


An FCT High court on Wednesday sentenced four men to jail for allegedly defrauding the Abuja Environmental Protection Board of N288,000.
The convicts; John Dodo, Mohammed Ndakupe, Sidiq Ibrahim and Abubakar Usman, were sentenced to two years imprisonment each.

They were tried and found guilty of a seven-count charge bordering on conspiracy, forgery and criminal misappropriation.


The judge, Justice Adebuklola Banjoko, in her ruling, granted them bail of N500,000 each after they pleaded not to repeat the acts for which they are facing prosecution.

The suspects’ counsel, Mr Anthony Agbonlahor, pleaded with the court to be lenient and temper justice with mercy because his clients are first time offenders.

He also said that they were of good behaviour throughout the duration of the trial.

EFCC counsel, Steve Odiase said “this nine-year-old case was first filed on April 18, 2007.


“There had been issues, trials and changing of counsel throughout the duration of the trial,’’ he said.

He also disclosed that the voluntary statements of one convict and a witness was used to champion the case.
