Immigration officer gets 7-year jail term for passport fraud

 

The spokesperson said Osuobeni Akponimisingha, counsel to
the ICPC, led evidence before the court on how Adeyinka defrauded Ovie Ojeffia
under the pretence of regularising his international passport.

 

He said that the convict received the sum of ₦100,000 from
Ojeffia to regularise her passport but reneged.

 

Bakare added that the victim later petitioned the ICPC,
which led to the investigation and arraignment of the convict before the court.

 

Onwuegbuzie, who found Adeyinka guilty on all four counts,
sentenced him to seven years imprisonment each for counts 1 and 2, five years
for count 4, and two years for count 3.

 

The sentences are to run simultaneously.
