IgbereTV reports that a former Chairman of Shongom Local Government Area of Gombe State, has been sentenced to 31 years in prison by the Federal High Court in Gombe, after his prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Gombe zonal office.

According to a statement from the EFCC, Adamu, was first arraigned on March 9, 2015 on a seven-count charge bordering on fraud, cheating and money laundering to the tune of N97, 640, 000 (Ninety-Seven Million, Six Hundred and Forty Thousand Naira only).

He pleaded "not guilty" to the charges read to him, thus prompting the EFCC to prosecute him for more than five years. During the trial, prosecution counsels, A. M. Labaran and A. Y Muntaka called four witnesses and tendered several exhibits, in order to prove the case beyond reasonable doubt.

In its judgment delivered on Thursday, July 23, 2020, Justice Afolabi found Adamu guilty of all the seven- count charges. He convicted and sentenced him to five years imprisonment on counts 1, 2 and 4 without an option of fine. On count 3, the court sentenced him to seven years imprisonment without an option of fine and on counts 5, 6 and 7, the court sentenced him to 3 years imprisonment each without an option of fine. The sentence is to commence from July 10, 2020, and run concurrently.

Justice Afolabi also ordered the convict to pay the sum of N31, 640, 000 (Thirty One Million, Six Hundred and Forty Thousand Nair only) to the coffers of Shongom Local Govt through the registry of the court under the supervision of the EFCC.

The journey of Adamu to prison started In May, 9, 2011, when the EFCC Gombe zonal office received petition from TICAN Engineering Enterprises against Adamu on allegations bordering on fraud, cheating and money laundering to the tune of N97, 640, 000 by way of inflation of contracts for rural electrification of Keffi; Kwara; Gangamari; Daja; Gurwa; Gundale; Bebbulo, Kuka, and Damjigiri areas of Shongom Local Govt., from N66, 000, 000 which was initially approved by the Tender board of Gombe state to N97.6million. Adamu was found guilty of the offence after investigation by the EFCC.

If someone genuinely stole N1Billion and he is asked to spend N1million every month, it will take him 83 years & 4months to finish it. ANALYSIS:
12 Months = 12M
10 Years. = 120M
20 Years. = 240M
40 Years. = 480M
80 Years. = 960 M...........Artiiclebeast
