Young Nigerian Fraudster Sentenced to 5 Years In Prison (Photo)



A Nigerian fraudster has been convicted by a court in Kaduna.

It was gathered that Anana Henry was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for defrauding one Amadi Musah Saleh the sum of Fifty-five Thousand Naira in a phony funding scheme in Kaduna.

The convict allegedly satisfied his sufferer by way of Facebook chat, to spend money on a web-based funding plan known as ‘Honour Investment Services’ with a promise of 100% returns on the funding inside 24 hours.

Following the chat, Saleh transferred N45, 000 and N10,000 to two separate accounts supplied by Anana.

Upon fee of the cash, as a substitute of the anticipated returns on funding, Anana stored requesting for added sums from the sufferer. Afterward, all efforts to get better the cash by the sufferer proved abortive.

The cost reads, ‘that you Henry Anaba, sometime in January 2020 in Kaduna within the jurisdiction of Kaduna Honourable Court did commit cheating by impersonation by presenting to be one Favour Anaba on Facebook platform and in such assumed character obtained the sum of N55,000 from one Amadi Musa Saleh and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 308 of the Kaduna Satate Penal Code Law of Kaduna Stat, 2017 and punishable under Section 309 of the same Law’

In view of his ‘guilty’ plea, the prosecuting counsel Onyeka. Ekweozor urged the Court to convict the defendant accordingly, whereas the defence counsel C. Ezengwa appealed for mercy because the convict is a primary time offender who has promised not bask in such act once more.

In his ruling, Justice M.T. M Aliyu of State High Court sitting in Kaduna convicted and sentenced Henry to 5 years imprisonment with the choice of positive of N100, 000.

The convict had already paid the sum of N 55,000 as restitution to the nominal complainant.
