| The Daily Crucible | Friday, March 5,2022

Justice Agatha A. Okeke of the Federal High Court, Uyo, has convicted and sentenced one Idongesit Samuel Eyibio to two years imprisonment without the option of a fine.

Eyibio was charged to court by the EFCC on February 6, 2020, for misleading the Commission by concealing vital information through a petition on a matter which a competent court had decided.

The offence contravenes the provisions of Section 39(2)(a) of the EFCC Establishment Act 2004 and punishable under Section 39(2)(b) of the same Act.

Delivering judgment yesterday, Justice Okeke said the prosecution had proven its case against the defendant beyond reasonable doubt, convicted and sentenced him accordingly.

Eyibio's Journey to prison started in 2019 when he wrote a petition with a fictitious name, alleging a lottery fraud against one Aniete Ekan of Papi Events & Promotion Limited and Akwa Ibom States Government, without disclosing that there was an existing judgment against him, over the same matter.

A 21 years old Adeogun Timileyin Feranmi who hails from Abule-Egba, Abeokuta in Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State has been convicted and sentenced to six months imprisonment for offences bordering on internet related scam and personation.

The conviction followed the arraignment of the defendant by the Ilorin Zonal Command of the EFCC, on one count charge before Justice Adenike Akinpelu of the Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin.

Feranmi was among the thirty internet fraud suspects arrested during a sting operation by operatives of the EFCC on September 19, 2021 at Malete, Moro Local Government Area of Kwara State following intelligence reports over their alleged involvements in internet fraud related offences.
