Court Convicts Man For Impersonating EFCC Operatives (Photo)

EFCC impersonator nabbed 
Justice I. O. Musa of the FCT High Court sitting in Abuja has sentenced one Akeem Oluwafemi Akanni, who was prosecuted by the EFCC to one month imprisonment. Akeem met his waterloo when he falsely presented himself as an officer of the EFCC to Abdullahi Idris, a staff of NNPC Kaduna.

Sometime in 2019, at Abuja, the convict fraudulently attempted to obtain money from one Abdullahi Idris, a staff of NNPC Kaduna branch office to pay N300,000 (Three Hundred Thousand Naira) under the guise that he was an EFCC officer and that he will assist him to “KILL A CASE FILED AGAINST HIM."

The offense is contrary to Section 95 of Penal code, laws of the Federation of Nigeria (Abuja) 1990 and punishable under Section 322 of the same law. The defendant pleaded guilty after the charge was read to him. Counsel to the defendant, Joseph Nyong Esq however notified the court of a plea bargain entered with the prosecution. 

The Judge thereafter sentenced the defendant to One month imprison with an option of fine to the tune of N20, 000 (Twenty thousand Naira) only.
