The Maiduguri Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, today January 11, 2021, secured the conviction and sentencing of one Mala Mallam Yawudi to three and a half years in prison before Justice Aisha Kumaliya of the State High Court Maiduguri for forgery and stealing to the tune of N645,000.00.

The convict pleaded guilty to the three-count charge preferred against him by the EFCC.

Based on his plea, the prosecution counsel, Mukhtar Ali Ahmed urged the court to convict and sentence the defendant according.

However, counsel to the convict, Ibrahim Moguno pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy considering the fact that the convict had been remorseful and has lots of dependents.

Justice Kumaliya, after listening to the parties, convicted the defendant on all three counts. He was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment without the option of fine on count two, while he bagged one year and six months’ imprisonment on counts three and one, with the option of N50,000 and N100,000 fine respectively.

The sentences are to run consecutively.
