BREAKING!! Ighalo Has Been Sentenced To Prison
Destiny Ighalo and ten others were convicted and sentenced for internet fraud by Justice Adamu Turaki Mohammed of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
For theft, they were sentenced to different jail terms.
The defendants were charged with impersonation and obtaining by false pretense by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) Benin Zonal Office.
Anhwo Samson, Harry Omo-egbekun Hamilton, Odiase Martins, Okuson Godspower, Destiny Ighalo, Andrew Onoyoa, Omebu Happy, Enofe Michael, Adelakun Abdulkareem, Akpowowo Favour, and Imaah Joseph are among those who have been found guilty.
They all pled guilty to a single count charge brought by the Commission against them.
The prosecution’s lawyer, Ahmed Arogha, asked the court to convict and sentence the defendants based on their pleas.
However, the defendants’ attorneys, John Okhuihievbe and O.A. Egharevba, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy because the defendants were first-time offenders who had shown remorse.
Many of the defendants were found guilty and sentenced to different jail terms by Justice Mohammed.
Samson was sentenced to two years in prison and a fine of N200,000. He must also pay the federal government N3,684,439.18 in forfeiture.
