Justice Emeka Isiagor of the Federal High Court, Umuahia, Abia State convicted and sentenced Chikwendu who is a fake Travel Agent to seven years imprisonment for defrauding his victims the sum of N9 million.
He was jailed on March 19, 2021 after a four-year trial in a 10-count charge preferred against him by the Port Harcourt Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. The charges bordered on obtaining money by false pretence.

The defendant pleaded “not guilty” to the charges, thereby prompting a full-trial of the case that lasted four years.
 
Justice Isiagor, in his judgment, found Chikwendu guilty, convicted and sentenced him to seven years imprisonment on counts 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 8, and discharged him on counts 1, 4, 9, & 10 of the charges. He ordered him to make a restitution of N9million to the victim.
