Justice Muhammad Tukur of the Kaduna State High Court on Wednesday convicted and sentenced one Auwal Aliyu for land fraud.

Aliyu was prosecuted by the Kaduna Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on amended one count of obtaining by false pretense to the tune of N1.5 million from his victim, Sa’ad Bello.

When the charge was read to him, Aliyu pleaded guilty while the prosecution counsel, P.C. Onyeneho, urged the court to convict him accordingly.

The judge convicted Aliyu, but sentenced him to a fine of N,1000, noting that he had restituted his victim the sum of N1.5 million he lost in the scam.

Trouble started for Aliyu following a petition in which his victim alleged that he sold a plot of land to him at the cost of N1.5 million, which did not belong to him.
The land is located in the New Millennium City in Kaduna State.
