Man, Jails, 7 Years For Impersonating Presidential Spoke Man,Femi Adesina

By Our Reporter 
A Kwara State High Court, sitting in Ilorin, Kwara , State has convicted Mr.Jamiu Isiaka to 28 years imprisoment.

Mr Isiaka was sentenced at the Mandala Correctional Centre, Ilorin, for impersonating Presidential spokesman, Femi Adeshina, to commit fraud against a South Korean national.

The Ilorin Zonal command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), had on June 14, 2019, arraigned him on four-count charges, to which he pleaded not guilty.

While delivering his  judgement on Thursday, Justice Mahmud Abdulgafar, said that the prosecution had tendered enough evidence to convince the court that the defendant was guilty as charged.

The court found Isiaka guilty of the charges and sentenced him to seven years in prison, on each count, to run concurrently.

The judge ordered the forfeiture of some properties recovered from the convict, which were proceeds of his unlawful activities.

The forfeited properties included, a four bed-room bungalow, located at Oke-Foma, Ilorin; a Toyota Corolla car; plasma television; home theatre; freezer; generator; washing machine; and an LG air conditioner, to the Federal Government.

The prosecution had averred that Isiaka had presented himself as the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, and a former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), late Maikanti Baru to Keun Sig Kim, a  South Korean, to defraud him of N30million.
