In a sentencing that many would be talking about for a while to come, a Nigerian man has been sentenced to 1,230 years in prison over scams he committed.
The judgment was made in a Lagos High Court in Igbosere
The perpetrator, on Babatunde Habeeb was a fake Engineer who claimed to be a site engineer and housing agent and under that pretext scammed people of around N28 million scam.
Habeeb, also known as Babatunde Salaudeen, was sentenced by Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye of defrauding 101 accommodation seekers under the pretext of renting them 13 apartments in a building at Alapere-Ketu, Lagos.
He was charged with 82 counts of conspiring with his elder brother, Alhaji Ishola Salaudeen and obtaining the N28m under false pretense, he was convicted of them all.
While Habeeb bagged over a thousand years, his brother, Alhaji Salaudeen, who’s also his accomplice is nowhere to be found according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The EFCC in the court’s opinion proved the case beyond all reasonable doubt and therefore secured the conviction.
According to the commission, the convict committed the offenses in 2013..
