Benjamin Adefemi Ogunbodede Jailed For 40 Years For N177 Million Fraud (PICS) by kirajustice: 5:16pm On Oct 03, 2017
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, secured the conviction and sentencing of Prof. Benjamin Adefemi Ogunbodede, a former Director-General, Institute of Agriculture Research and Training, IART, Ibadan, Oyo State before Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel of the Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Ogunbodede had been prosecuted alongside the trio of Zacheaus Tejumola, Adenose Clement and Jalekun Omotowoju on a 17-count charge bordering on conspiracy, misappropriation and diversion of funds to the tune of N177 million.

Trouble started for the convicts following receipt of a petition dated December 17, 2012, written by the Academic Staff Union of the institute by the Commission.

The petitioners had alleged that Ogunbodede falsely claimed to have used the sum of N115million to pay hazard allowance to the members of staff of the institute in December 2013.

It was also alleged that Ogunbodede claimed to have used the sum of N15million to harvest crops.

However, investigations revealed that he actually spent N800, 000 to harvest the crops.The convicts had all pleaded not guilty to the charge when they were arraigned on June 16, 2014, thereby setting the stage for their trial.

In the course of the trial, the prosecution counsel had presented 15 witnesses and tendered relevant documents, which were all admitted in evidence.

Also, in 2016, 10 other accused persons in the matter had pleaded guilty to the charge and subsequently entered into a plea bargain arrangement with the Commission.

Delivering his judgement today, Justice Ayo- Emmanuel said the prosecution had proved his case beyond any reasonable doubt. He, therefore, convicted and sentenced the first and second accused persons to 40 years imprisonment without an option of fine.

The third accused was sentenced to four years imprisonment without an option of fine.

The sentences are to run concurrently.

Integrity is the key. Having and securing your good name is good, nothing compared to it. Their names have been tainted, just because of greed and selfishness.

My Nigerian people, if you need to steal, steal in billions.

A word is enough for the wise.

If you steal billions, people will praise you, invite you to occasions and write your biography as an industrious son of the soil. SANs will defend you and the poor will chant your name in front of the court house until you are set free, that is in the highly unlikely event that you would even be arrested.

If you steal in millions or less, kirikiri is your home permanently and zone F is your kitchen.

If you steal in thousands, jungle justice is certain, eventually

Be wise and steal properly like our leaders grin

Lovely. That's the way it should be. Corrupt officials must pay a heavy fine for financial crimes. I only wish judgements like these should be more swift.
