Varsity graduate earns one year jail over $9, 654 fraud  

Just when the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) reportedly, bungled the corruption case of ex-governor of Oyo State, Rasheed Ladoja in a N4.7 billion corruption charge, the same agency has secured the conviction of a university graduate, Obinna Udoji over $9, 654 fraud.

Udoji, a graduate of the Department of Building Technology, Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State was arrested by EFCC operatives on January 7, 2019 following intelligence report that he fraudulently obtained money from one Alina Ruso, which he claimed was to be invested in a company, Zenith Margin, which turned out to be false.

The convict was subsequently arraigned before Justice A.O. Onovo of an Enugu State High Court, for the offence of obtaining money by false pretence, to which he pleaded “guilty”.

The trial judge, however, asked the prosecution led by Innocent Mbachie, to present its witness, “in order for the court to hear the facts of the case”.  Thereafter, a prosecution witness was called, who narrated how an intelligence report was received by the EFCC, which led to the investigation and arrest of Udoji.

EFCC tendered as evidence, the intelligence report, statements, bank statements, scanned emails from Udoji’s computer and emails from the EFCC to the victim to establish the case, including Udoji’s application for plea bargain.

Mbachie, further told the court that Udoji had returned the money to his victim, and urged the court to “convict him in accordance to Section 367 subsection 8, 9 and 10 of the Administration of criminal Justice Act”.

Defence counsel, T.U. Nweke, pleaded with the judge to “temper justice with mercy” as his client was a first-time offender and an orphan.

Justice Onovo, on February 7, 2019 sentenced him to one year in prison, noting that, “I took cognizance of his plea and his restituting of the total sum to the victim”.
