Two men, Ugwu Pascal Chijioke and Ibrahim Sadiq Adekunle, have been sentenced to 46 years’ imprisonment by an Ikeja division of the Special Offences Court. 

They were convicted for impersonating operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, according to a statement by the EFCC on Sunday.

The EFCC made this known in a statement on Sunday.

The statement indicated, “Messrs Chijioke and Adekunle, were re-arraigned by the Lagos Zonal Command of the EFCC on an amended five-count charge bordering on impersonation, attempt to obtain property, possession of documents containing false pretence and unlawfully wearing the uniform of the EFCC. Delivering judgment, Justice Abike-Fadipe, sentenced the defendants each to seven years on counts one to three each, one year on count four and eight months on count five. The sentences are to run concurrently.”

According to the anti-graft agency, the convicts were arrested sometime in May, 2021, following credible intelligence received by the commission, while they were in the middle of an illegal operation at the New Horizon Estate, Lekki, Lagos.
