Former Benue SUBEB boss gets 12 years jail over N91m fraud

2 7up eTribunal sacks Adamawa lawmaker over certificate forgerymployees face jail for stealing pack of Pepsi drinks

A High Court in Benue State has sentenced a former Chairman of the Benue State Universal Basic Education Board, Anum Iho, to 12 years imprisonment over his embezzlement of N91.5 million meant for the training of teachers in the state.

A former staff of the parastatal, Donald Anageende, who served during his tenure, was sentenced alongside Iho. They were dragged before the court by the ICPC, over misappropriation of funds and collection of bribe. Anageende was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment.

The Chief Judge of Benue State, Justice Adam Onum, who presided over the case, said the evidence provided by the prosecution counsel, proved beyond doubt that the accused persons embezzled funds while in office.

The prosecution team told the court that the duo embezzled the sum of N91.5m meant for the training of teachers in the state and also collected bribe of N14.9m from a contractor, Brown Sugar Global Resources Limited, while in office.

Justice Onum while delivering judgement, said the sentence was without an option of fine.
