Businessman Ordered To Clean Church For 90 Days In Abuja

Information reaching Naija News House says that Businessman Ordered To Clean Church For 90 Days In Abuja

An FCT High Court in Kubwa, on Tuesday, ordered a 27-year-old businessman, Ejaigu Doland, to clean the premises of Saint John Mary Vianney Catholic Church, Kubwa, Abuja for 90 days for attempted cheating

Doland pleaded guilty to fraud charges filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and begged the court for leniency.

Delivering his ruling, Justice Kezziah Ogbonnaya, ordered Doland to report to the church every day at 9am, sign in and out upon completion of the service.

“Failure to perform the community service would lead to a reversal of the sentence to a correctional facility,” Ogbonnaya said.

She warned him to desist from committing crime and be of good behaviour.

Earlier, the EFCC counsel, Mariya Sherriff, told the court that Doland created a social media account misrepresenting himself to be Elliott Camfield, a cryptocurrency expert with intentions to defraud a foreign citizen in September 2021.

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

He said a plea bargain agreement had been signed by the defence counsel, Calistus

Aneke and the terms were adopted.

Sherriff said the agreement is pursuant to Section 270 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA), adding that Doland agreed to forfeit proceeds of the crime to the federal government.

“The proceeds include, a N300,000 bank draft, his HP laptop, iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy cell phone,” she said.
