A 200-level student of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Muniru Adigun, has been sentenced to seven and half years imprisonment by an Ikeja High Court presided over by Justice Monike Obadina.

The accused, who was standing trial with another accused person, Emeka Ekeh over a five-count charge of conspiracy to obtain money by false pretences and forgery levelled against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), pleaded guilty to the charge while his accused counterpart Emeka, pleaded not guilty.

The EFCC prosecutor, Mr. Kayode Oni, told the court that the accused, who operated with the name of the CBN Governor, Professor Charles Soludo, together with the second accused, conspired to obtain 1,300 US dollars under false pretence from one Vicky Deschene, an American citizen, as processing fee for the transfer of 27,000 US dollars to her in the United States.

The sum was claimed by the accused to have been recovered from a Nigeria fraudster that obtained the sum of 33,000 US dollars from the American.

The prosecutor also told the court that the accused also forged a Union Bank Nigeria Plc’s draft in the name of one Douglas Schrether for the sum of 750,000 US dollars purported to have been issued by the bank.

The defence counsel , Mr. Tunde Adesanya, pleaded with the judge to tempter justice with mercy and that the accused was influenced by his friend and has shown remorse for his action.

The judge, while giving her ruling, said she accepted the guilty plea of the accused and convicted him as charged. She said the accused should have concentrated on his studies at the university to earn a degree and livelihood through lawful means, but because he had shown remorse for his action, she would be lenient with him.

She, however, sentenced him to 18 months imprisonment for each count without option of fine. The sentence will run concurrently.
