Photo: Lagos High Court sentence man to 5 years imprisonment for N10.5 million fraud

The Lagos State High Court presided over by Justice Kudirat Jose on 21 September, 2016 convicted and sentenced one Michael Ugochukwu to five years imprisonment on a one count charge of stealing to the tune of N10,500,000 (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand Naira Only) property of Patrick Ekeh.

The convict was arraigned by the EFCC in early 2014 following investigation of a petition by one Patrick Ekeh who alleged that he imported a total of twenty eight vehicles for the convict from the United States of America sometime in January 2010 through the Lagos port. It was later discovered in April 2010 when the audit of the vehicles inventory was conducted that all the twenty eight vehicles were sold with the exception of one. But when confronted, the convict told the complainant that there were still five vehicles left to be sold whose total cost was N10,500,000. The petitioner did all he could to get his money but Michael refused to pay him which compelled him to report the matter to EFCC.
Upon arraignment, Ugochukwu pleaded not guilty and full trial was conducted in which the prosecution led by Chidinma Anita called four witnesses. At the end of trial, the court found the accused guilty as charged and convicted him accordingly.
Justice Jose sentenced the convict to five years imprisonment without option of fine. She also ordered that restitution of the stolen sum be made by the convict

This man is my childhood friend, intelligent and smart graduate and not a fraudster in any way; case seem complicated but it is not. It's a family feud/business gone wrong. Patrick Ekeh, the alleged man he defrauded was still in the accused's house with his family from the state some months back as I saw him and we all laughed and joked together....I just gave up on this country now and on our judicial system not because he was sentenced but because a lot of Saraki, Jibrins, Dogaras, Patience, Amaechi etc. are still lounging about town. To our politicians and judiciary, the youths are getting more tired and restless about your obvious punishment of the ordinary people; we are no fools, the game is almost over for you all!

There's more to this story o. Much much more. This man is not guilty one bit. He has a good heart and it breaks my heart to see him blackmailed this way. This is a case of corruption in high places, and the rich oppressing the poor. God will judge the perpetrators of this evil act, and vindicate this man in Jesus name, amen.

Ugochukwu is innocent of the crime. This guy called Patrick is his so called cousin and after University he begged Ugo to help him sell cars. Ugo and Patrick elder jobless brother called Godwin where both assisting Patrick in the sale of his cars which the profit was shared among them but Godwin got the highest share, and Ugo does all the deal himself. Later ,Patrick decided to remove his brother Godwin because he observed he was taking so much from the profit. Patrick decided that Ugo will be the only one in control of the sale of the cars. Linda, Ugo has remitted more than 40Million if am not mistaken to his cousin o! in the sale of cars, he has been loyal and truthful indeed. Until his boss took the money hoping to pay up and never did until now and the boss when found has admitted that he took the money and was going to pay back which both the FESTAC police and EFCC know about. Linda, Ugochukwu has been paying the bills ever since then and even most of his uncles have been assisting him because he lost his job because of Patrick ,and his elder sister arrested him while on duty. I just wonder what kind of a woman the judge is. How can she do that to that innocent guy, after refusing to see all his proofs of payments to Patrick's father as agreed. Linda something is wrong somewhere and I know you can help Ugo out. All those that made a wrong comment of this young man are indeed wrong and do not know the right story so please don't judge him okay! because he is innocent of the crime and I know God will vindicate him for sure. The truth will come out someday and the devil will be put to shame. Patrick all the bribe you and your elder sister gave to those you gave will one day hunt you both, that is for sure unless I am not serving a Living God.

Linda Help Him! if not for anything for his little Son, Linda You are well Connected, All we ask is take the matter to a higher authority and let them investigate it well, let them investigate why the Judge refused to see the proof of payment that Mr. Ugo has made to #Evil Patrick. Mr. Ugo is not a fraud.

This is a Family problem and greed from Mr. Patrick.

May God Help Him and he will come out alive, This evil Family will not succeed.

Kai, If this is what we see in Nigeria, Then we will all live in fear...#LawMakers
