Justice Darius Khobo of a Kaduna High Court, on Monday, sentenced an unemployed man, David Jude, to one year imprisonment for a N3 million contract scam.
Jude had pleaded guilty to the charge of cheating filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The Judge, however, gave the convict an option of a N300,000 fine.
Khobo further ordered the convict to pay N3m restitution to the victim, Frank Victor.
He held that if the convict failed to pay Victor, he will serve the one-year jail term.’
Earlier, the EFCC counsel, J. M. Musa, told the court that Jude was arrested following a petition filed by nk Victor, accusing the convict of obtaining N3m from him under the pretext of executing a contract purportedly awarded to him by a Non-Governmental Organisation called ‘Hope For All’.
The EFCC said the offence contravenes the provisions of Section 217 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017.
