Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on October 13, 2015 secured the conviction of Igho Agbana and Akarah Eloho Anthony,before Justice Shittu Abubakar of the Federal High Court Warri, Delta State.
The convicts, who were docked on a two-count charge of conspiracy and use of forged documents, were sentenced to two years imprisonment without an option of fine on each of the counts.
Justice Abubakar also ordered that the convicts return the sum of $12,000 to their victim, from Hong Kong
The National Intelligence Agency, NIA, had petitioned the EFCC in June 2013 on behalf of the victim, accusing Agbana and Anthony of engaging in fraudulent activities. They conspired and used a forged Federal Republic of Nigeria Driver’s Licence with the name Prital S. Atwal and used it to open accounts with a branch of First City Monument Bank (FCMB) 1 located at 34B Allen Drive, Kosini, Warri, Delta State, to defraud their victim.
