Convicted prisoner bags fresh 162 years for N12m fraud

A convicted fraudster, Ikechukwu Ogbu, was sentenced to 162 years in prison by a Lagos State High Court in Ikeja on Tuesday for defrauding a former manager of the defunct BankPHB now Keystone Bank, Mr. Patrick Edetchukwu, of the sum of  N12.3m.

The convict, who is in his mid-50’s and presently  serving a jail term for two separate offences, duped Edetchukwu of the said sum  on the pretence that he was being detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and needed some money to give the anti-graft officials before he could be released.
