Two JAILED 22 years for impersonating EFCC officials

Two people have been jailed for impersonating officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)

An Ikeja Special Offences Court sentenced the men, Ugwu Chijioke and Ibrahim Adekunle, to 22 years imprisonment for the offence.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that they were sentenced to 22 years and eight months imprisonment.

The sentence followed their plea bargain agreement to the five counts bordering on impersonation, attempt to obtain property, possession of documents containing false pretence and unlawfully wearing of the EFCC uniform.

The judge sentenced them to seven years each on count one to three, one year on count four and eight months on count five.

She, however, ordered that the sentences should run concurrently.

Earlier, the EFCC counsel, Mr Abdulhamid Tukur, submitted that the defendants had in their possession false documents to impersonate officials of the EFCC and extort unsuspecting members of the public.

He said the items recovered from the defendants at the point of arrest included fake EFCC identity cards, jackets, and a court order purported to have emanated from Mushin Magistrate Court.
