Nigerian man sentenced to two years imprisonment over One Million naira car scam

On June 1, 2017 the EFCC secured the conviction of Marcellinus Akochi Ezeoke before Justice Lawal Wada of the Kano State High Court on a one count charge of obtaining by false pretence.  
The convict was arraigned on November 25, 2015 and pleaded not guilty to the charge. In the course of the trial, prosecution counsel Douglas I.
Gift called two witnesses and presented several exhibits to prove the case against the convict.  The convict fraudulently obtained the sum of N1,010,000 (One Million, Ten Thousand Naira Only) from the complainant by falsely claiming that he was a car dealer based in Cotonou, Benin Republic. 

Based on that, the complainant sent him the said sum for the purchase of a Peugeot 406 but the convict failed to deliver the vehicle and became incommunicado.  In his judgment today, Justice Wada held that the prosecution had established the case against the convict beyond reasonable doubt and convicted him on count 2 of the charge.  

Before the sentence, the convict pleaded for mercy. Consequently, Justice Wada sentenced him to two years imprisonment with the option of N50,000 fine. The convict was also ordered to restitute the sum of N1,000,000 (One Million Naira ) to the court.

Saw a video making rounds on social media of a poor soldier subjected to jungle justice by some villagers in Ghana. He was accuses of stealing which I'm thinking may be a setup. The gruesome way they killed him with stones and sticks will make even the devil shiver.Gosh!

A man is convicted and sentence to 2 (two) years imprisonment over 1million naira. What what happens to politicians, leaders convicted of stealing billions of naira, false assets declaration or the millions of Naira, dollars and pounds found in Ikoyi apartment. Case is either adjourned, covered or closed. What a nation. I wish I'm privileged.

i always wonder why justice is faster when it comes to the poor man but when it comes to politicians that have looted and stolen public funds, the court case drags on forever.
