Photos: Court registrar sentenced to 10yrs imprisonment for aiding Fred Ajudua to defraud Gen. Bamaiyi

Justice Lateef Lawal-Akapo of the Lagos High Court has sentenced a Court Registrar, Oluronke Rosolu, to 10 years imprisonment for aiding and abetting Fred Ajudua to defraud former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ishaya Bamaiyi (retd) of $330,000 while he was in Kirikiri Prisons.

According to a report by PM News, Rosolu is accused of visiting Kirikiri prisons on three occasions in 2004 and collected $300,000 from Bamaiyi under the pretense that the money would be used to secure legal services from Afe Babalola chambers for him.

During her trial, the accused denied all the allegations against her and insisted that she never visited the prisons as alleged by the EFCC or collected any money. She also denied ever meeting Ajudua or General Bamaiyi.

While delivering judgment today, Justice Lawal-Akapo said EFCC was able to prove the case of conspiracy and obtaining of money by false pretence against her. He ruled that despite denying any contact or meeting with Ajudua in Kirikiri prisons, evidence presented by the EFCC showed that Rosolu and Ajudua were co-conspirators.

On the allegation that she never collected any money from Bamaiyi while in prison, the judge held that not being able to show where she was on the dates she was purported to have visited the prisons and collected the money, he had no option but to believe the evidence of the EFCC witnesses.

Justice Lawal-Akapo subsequently held that the EFCC has proved its case beyond all reasonable doubt.

In her defensive, Rosolu said she never had any personal interaction with Ajuua and Bamaiyi

"I did not receive $330,000 from Lt. Gen. Ishaya Bamaiyi neither did I go to the Kirikiri Maximum Prisons to see him on Dec. 20, 2004. I knew Bamaiyi and Ajudua only as defendants in separate criminal cases before Justice Oyewole. I never had any personal interactions with either of them until I was summoned by the EFCC in Abuja in 2013”.
