Wonder Bank' Operator Jailed Three Years

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Sokoto Zonal Office, today, February 17, 2020, secured the conviction of one Amina Kabo (a.k.a Fauziyya) before Justice Mohammed Mohammed of the Sokoto State High Court sitting in Sokoto. She was convicted on a one-count amended charge bordering on Cheating to the tune of N907, 500 (Nine Hundred and SevenThousand, Five Hundred Naira).

Kabo, a fake manager at Olive Micro Finance Bank, who allegedly collected the sum from 108 victims, pleaded guilty to the charge when she was arraigned.

In view of her plea, the prosecution counsel, Buhari Mohammed Balarabe, asked the court to convict and sentence the defendant in line with the plea bargain agreement.

However, the defence counsel, Shamsu A. Dauda, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy as his client was a first time offender who has become remorseful. He also told the court that the defendant has restituted the victims in the sum of N907, 500.00.

Justice Mohammed, thereafter convicted and sentenced the defendant to three (3) years imprisonment with an option of fine of Thirty thousand naira (N30, 000). He also ordered full restitution to the Victims.
