Mr Ibrahim Baba, the  immediate past sole administrator of Kaura Local Government, Kaduna State, has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment without option of fine.


Mr. Baba was jailed for offences bordering on obtaining money by false pretence, the EFCC said in a statement on Thursday.

The convict was arraigned before Justice Tukur Mu’azu of Kaduna State High Court on January 7 on allegation of defrauding Auwal Ibrahim of Rahusa Investment Limited, Sabon Hunkuyi, Kaduna State in 2011, over a phony gas supply contract.

The victim allegedly paid the convict N1 million for the supply of five trucks of gas at the rate of N200,000 per truck.

“But after the payment was made, the victim neither received the product nor gets a refund,” EFCC said.

    1. What stupid work is that??. 1m 7yrs in prison. While those that steal billions are getting bailed and celebrated. Sad the money wasn't big enough. If He he defraud his victim billion or naira or dollars. He would have been set free and ask to pay part of the money. What a lawless country we are living in. Laws meant for the poor.

    1. What about those that embezzled public fund and sent innocent souls to their early grave as a result of misappropriation of fund meant to fight boko haram and money meant for social infrastructure. Do you know how many people dying every day as result to lack of electricity to carry out operation or road accident due to bad roads and untimely death due to bad medications shipped into the country? An injury to one should be an injury to us all.

  4. This a simple and direct case of 419. It has absolutely nothing to do with the convict being in government! It may well have been a case of ordinary civil contract gone awry!
