Court Orders Internet Fraudster To Sweep Police Station For 90 Days


Feb 16, 2022


The FCT High Court, Kubwa Division has ordered a barber identified as Isaac Clement to sweep the police station in Kwali Area Council for 90 days for cheating.

The 21-year-old man who pleaded guilty to fraud filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), begged the court for leniency.

Delivering his ruling, Justice Kezziah Ogbonnaya, ordered that the sentence should begin on Thursday.

The judge also ordered that Mr Clement must sign in and out daily after sweeping the police station.

Mr Ogbonnaya warned Mr Clement to desist from committing crimes and be of good behaviour.

Earlier, the EFCC Counsel, Rita Ogar, told the court that a plea bargain agreement dated February 4 had been signed by the defence counsel, Patrick Onuh, and its terms adopted.

She told the court that Mr Clement posed as Parthner Smith, an American military officer and tricked another American citizen, Felicia Mendez, to pay $ 550.

She said he deceived Ms Mendez to believe that he was going to buy a flight ticket to visit her in August 2021.

The offence, she said, contravened the provisions of Section 320 of the Penal Code and was punishable under Section 322.
