Woman jailed for duping Osaze, others | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


A bogus lifestyle guru who stole more than £130,000 from Premier League footballers, a top manager and two millionaire businessmen was on Monday jailed for three years and eight months.

Claire Liddle, 41, conned wealthy clients including Stoke City forward Osaze Odemwingie, Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom and former Celtic boss Tony Mowbray by offering to organise their luxury holidays.

Liddle swindled Odemwingie out of £15,000 after the Nigerian striker handed over his bank details to organise his Miami honeymoon in 2012.

She also stole at least £7,500 from currently out on loan to Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg.

She wept as she was sentenced to 12 months for the first fraud on the footballers, and 16 months consecutive on each of the other two scams, making a total of 44 months.

In April 2014 Liddle was sentenced to two years imprisonment suspended for two years with 150 hours unpaid work after admitting fraud.
