Traditional Ruler in Zamfara Imprisoned for fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Friday secured the conviction of one Umar Kabir Danbaba before Justice Nasiru Saminu of the Kano State High Court on a one-count charge of cheating.

The convict fraudulently obtained the sum of N1,470,000 (One Million, Four Hundred amd Seventy Thousand Naira) from the complainant for the purpose of securing and allocating mining site in Zamfara State but instead diverted the money to his personal use.

The EFCC described the suspect as a traditional ruler in the Northwest state of Zamfara.

Upon his intial arraignment on June 16, 2017, the convict pleaded not guilty to the nine-count charge brought against him by the EFCC .

However, at the resumed trial Friday, he changed his plea of not guilty to guilty, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC’s
head of media and publicity, said in a statement.

In view of that development, counsel representing the prosecution Nasiru Salele urged the court to convict him accordingly.

Following a plea by the defence counsel for the court to tamper justice with mercy, Justice Saminu convicted the accused person and sentenced him to one year imprisonment with option of N50,000 (Fifty Thousand Naira) fine.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  2. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic
    nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe
    guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog covers a
    lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Terrific blog by the way!

  3. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time
    making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
