UNIABUJA student docked for scamming Job seekers

A Federal High Court in Abuja yesterday jailed two
men, Alex Oki (an undergraduate) and Ndukaku
Azuka (motor mechanic), for duping job seekers
and dealing in cocaine.

Oki, 27, who was described as a 400-level student
of the University of Abuja was sentenced to 10
years imprisonment, while Azuka, 32, was
sentenced to 24 months by Justice Gabriel
Kolawole who had earlier convicted them.

Oki was arraigned October 28, 2014 along with two
others on a 5-count charge by the Federal Inland
Revenue Service (FIRS) for posing as an official of
the FIRS and duping job seekers with the promise
to help them secure employment with the FIRS.

pleaded not guilty to the charge.
On June 15, this year, he changed his mind and
pleaded guilty to the charge, following which
Justice Kolawole convicted him and adjourned his
sentencing to a later date.
While sentencing him yesterday, the judge
wondered why a university student with hope of a
better tomorrow would choose to engage himself
in swindling fellow young Nigerians who are
seeking to be employed.

Justice Kolawole, who regretted the prevailing
moral decadence in the society, wondered why
Oki’s parents never showed interest in his trial.

The judge chose to be lenient with the convict by
sentencing him to the minimum prescribed prison
term under the law on which he was charge by
jailing him two years on each count which are to
serve concurrently.

“Imposing fine is not going to serve the interest of
justice and serve as deterrent to others. It is hoped
that the convict will take advantage of the light
sentence by the court and turn a new leaf.

He is to
serve two years in prison, from October 28 when
he was arraigned and remanded in custody,” the
judge said.
