Scamming Pastor Headed to Prison, Thank God!
Monday, 10 November 2008
The long arm of the law has caught up with Chibundu Achinihu as he is to spend the next seven years in prison. Honourable Justice F. A. Andetuk of High Court 3 in Jalingo, TarabaState last Wednesday found Achinihu guilty of the offences for which he was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. The EFCC had on February 20, 2007 arraigned the accused person who claims to be a pastor on a one court charge of Advance Fee Fraud.
The accused was said to have sometime between February and September 2004 in Jalingo committed the offence with the intention to defraud and obtained the sum of twenty million (N20, 000, 0000) naira from one Pastor Pichson Isaac under the false pretence that he was operating a company that was capable of paying 25 per cent interest on the said amount at the end of 30 working days.The accused had also promised that at the end of 90 days, he will pay back the interest and principal, an agreement he failed to keep.
When the matter was first heard on May 25, 2007, the prosecution called 14 witnesses and tendered 22 exhibits including cars and documents to support its case while the defense had no witnesses. The honorable judge who heard the submission of the prosecution counsel and that of the defense delivered judgment on November 5 and found the accused person guilty of the charge and therefore sentenced him to seven years imprisonment.
The trial judge also ordered that the accused pay back the N20 million to the victim just as he gave order that property of the accused be auctioned by the court and be supervised by the prosecutor in line with section 11(1)(2) of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Related Offences Act.
