EFCC press release: Court jails ex-banker 115years for N8.9m scam

115 years for N8.9m fraud? Choi. Well, thankfully it will run concurrently. See the EFCC press release below...
A Lagos High court sitting in Igbosere, presided over by Justice Adebisi Akinlade on Monday February 17, 2014 sentenced Jamiu Seun Odunayo (pictured above), a former banker, to One Hundred and Fifteen Years (115) imprisonment with no option of fine over an offense which borders on fraud, stealing, and obtaining money by false pretense.
The convict was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on 39-count amended charge for fraudulently obtaining money by false pretences, stealing and suppression of funds to the tune of Eight Million Eight Hundred and Twenty Nine Thousand, Six Hundred and Fifty Naira, (N8, 829,650) belonging to a customer and diverted it for personal use.
One of the counts reads: "Seun Jamiu Odunayo sometime on the 7th day of March 2011 in Lagos within the Ikeja Judicial Division whilst being a staff of Skye Bank Plc stole N848,690.00 (Eight Hundred and Forty Eight Thousand, Six Hundred and Ninety Naira) property of Skye Bank Plc".
The convict had earlier pleaded not guilty to the 39-count charge that was preferred against him but later changed his plea following a plea bargain.

However Justice Akinlade, in her ruling on Monday, sentenced the defendant to one Hundred and Fifteen Years imprisonment, (115) - three years on each of the 39 -count charge. They are to run concurrently. The sentence is to start from the date of his arrest.

The journey to prison began on May 19, 2011, when the commission received a petition from a bank, alleging that one of its staff who was a Cash Pick up Officer to one of its customers, did not credit the customer's account. The customer alerted the bank, when she discovered that the sum of Eight Million Eight Hundred and Twenty Nine Thousand Six Hundred and Fifty Naira, N8, 829,650 was not credited into her account. The convict consequently absconded from his duty post to evade arrest.
However, Odunayo in his statement stated that, he started stealing from the customer’s account in November 2010, due to delay in payment of his salary. He started with N50, 000 (Fifty Thousand Naira) and later increased it till it reached the sum of N848, 690.00.

The convicts confessed that he used part of the money for his wedding; built a 4-bedroom bungalow in Mowe, Ogun state; bought a car, and used the rest for clubbing.

Government should act and put some powerful criminals behind bars... Mr pls learn ur lesson while in prison and know there's dignity in labour

breal said...

Hmmm! I didn't even bother reading cuz I wld still come to same conclusion. "Everyday 4 the thief, one day 4 the owner". Nobody goes unpunished. If these politicians who swallow billions upon trillions, don't get caught in their lifetime, their children wld surely pay for their sins. The children wld then curse then for the pain they brought upon them.

EFCC can never get any better proof to nail any stealing politician. Well this one too deserved to continue his clubbing in prison. Safe journey bro.

Awon Stephen Oshi said...

I see it as fit punishment. They're trying to make an example using him because somebody in a position of power (him as a banker) has breached a trust agreement between him and customers. The white people see it as the highest form of wickedness so no reason why it would be any different here.

Anonymous said...

They are jailing exbanker for 115 years for 8.9million fraud. He definitely deserves to be punished but that is outrageous. May be jailing him for like 30 years would be sensible. How about the WICKED leaders stealing billions? They are the ones that deserve 115 years. rubbish.

God will punish those bastard called efcc and the government officials who steal and get away with it due to their position and connections,115yrs for stealing 8. Million Naira when some bastards are riding freely in their exquisite cars after stealing billions meant for the country. Yes he stole and got the reward for stealing( which is damn too much) but the bigger thieves didn't get theirs. God will arise and pass his judgement it's only a matter of time.

Anonymous said...

Okay,i have never dropped a comment on this blog and this is my first.
The verdict by go knows who this Judge is ,is malicious and very stupid.
A common man steals 8 million and you sentence him to 115 years in jail,while we have the likes of Stella Oduah and %90 of individuals in any Governmental position,stealing billions upon billions on a daily basis,yet,they roam free in flashy cars and luxury. where the useless EFCC,and why have these people who steal billions been sentenced to 300 years imprisonment.
why have the EFCC not looked for and sentence those involved in the 26 billion dollars which the NNPC cannot till date account for.

The Nigerian Government enforces useless laws to suit itself and the members of its cabinets,that is the one which it favors.
I am not gay and my religion condemns the act,but then again it is not a yardstick to criminalize the act,you pass a 14 years sentence on same self marriage,while a pedophile roams free in one of the government establishments.
The funny thing here is that,these same individuals whose signatures made this anti gay bill a reality are the major culprit of this act ,but they are comfortable,because they know the laws are not for people in power ,but for that poor man who happens to be born different and who cannot defend himself with either money or connections.
The level of impunity in this country is slowly bringing us to ruins,but i pray it brings these criminals in power to ruins first.

115 yrs over 8.9m ??? What about the $10b missing ?? 100 million yrs imprisonment ? Nigeria is a joke!

Anonymous said...

The most annoying part is that he used part of the money to club. How can he even say that in court?? Dumb head. That one is enough for the judge to sentence him 10yrs because he didn't use it for something good.

hilary obiorah said...

Why all the discrepancies in sentencing in Nigeria! Bode George stole billions in dollars, he got 2 years!!! That other guy stole people's pension and was made to pay a 1000 dollar fine!!! And this here n*gger steals JUST 8.9m, less than a fraction of what any government official steals and gets more than a 100 years!!!! Stealing is stealing, so why should their sentencing be any different? Or has this country become so elitist that there are a set of laws for the poor and another for the rich? WTH kinda country was I born into? A land of hypocrites and bullies!!!

Nigerian judiciary is a joke. Ibori that stole billions of dollars was not even given up to 20 years. And what about the subsidy scam that involves trillions of naira, anyone convicted yet? This whole country is a huge joke, no wonder Nigeria has got this joker of a president. This country is just not worth it anymore, it's all about man know man. If this guy was one connected banker, am sure it would have been settled amicably while the guy would be smiling in his house right now. What a country!

Haba! Nigeria and unreasonable laws! this is cruel. someone stole less than 10m and they sentenced him 115yrs jail term. What happens to the likes of Erastus Akingbola, Cecilia Ibru, Tafa Balogun and the whole lots of them international thieves? those ones should be sentenced to death by hanging.Our national anthem says "to build a nation where peace and justice shall reign". Is this one fair justice? I am not saying what the guy did is good, yes he is a thief and deserves to be punished but haba! 115years is just insane in a country where corruption is as normal as drinking garri with groundnut and cold water among our stupid so called leaders.

Relax people! I am a lawyer, when a sentence is to run concurrent, it means he will only serve 3yrs not 115 years. How can he serve a life sentence for stealing N8.9?

Haba! Habatically!!! Haba!!!!! What happened? Unbelievable!!! Incredible!!! Lesson to learn: steal BIG, enuff to bribe the judge wiv millions, bribe EFCC and walk out still a millionaire. The judge will be the MC @ the thanksgiving the Sunday after the acquital.

yet the likes of ogunbambo and ayinde are still walking free from fraudulently claiming oil subsidy. God dey.

If you read correctly you will notice that he got sentenced to three years for each of the thirty nine counts. All the sentences are to run concurrently. Translation he was only sentenced to three years in prison.

Further the three years start running from the date of his arrest which was in 2011. Translation he will get released from prison sometime this year.

Read properly before you make comments.

Poor man wey thief Maggie dem go show him face for crime fighter, our politician do more than dis guy, and we haven't heard of any of dem being jailed! Na wah for 9ja ooooooo!

I mean it's just a shame in Nigeria the amount of graduates that commented on this article that couldn't figure out that 3yrs count on 39-charges concurrent from time of arrest means he spends just 3yrs which elapses this year since he was arrested 2011. Yet we wonder why there is so much unemployment and educated illiterates. If you are part of the ppl shouting 115years u need to start self-educating yourself.

I wasn't sure before, but now I am convinced that majority of the people commenting on Linda's Blog are either semi-literate or kids who can't read or understand English!The story states clearly that the banker got 3 years for each of the 39 counts, which is 3 x 39 = 117years. And these terms are running concurrently, which means he is to serve just 3 years, he has been in Jail since 2011 and so he will be free this year!! Concurrently means they run simultaneously

souvenirworks said...

I think this is preposterous n outrageous...many senators, governors, and politicians have stolen and embezzled much more to the tune of zillions and have been acquitted. Jus this ordinary 8M and he's being Jailed for life..what a waste.

Nah wah...English nah serious problem, concurrently means at the same time (Happening at the same time as something else)so for judge's ruling of 3yrs each for the 39 count charge will run @ the same time. so the guy will only serve 3yrs in d prison for the all the 39 allegations against him........

The nigerian judiciary is bias in discharging their duty.How can they jail a banker 115yrs for 8.5 million naira while john yusus,the pension fraudster was jail for just 2 weeks with an option of fine for 200 billion dollars pension fund?Is it not the same fraud while one is mightier than the other?They are bias.

Toyin Abolumo said...

This is stupid and the judge is a very stupid person. How do jail someone for that long just cos of that amount of money. Are they mad? So should they kill all the thieving politicians based on the sheer amount of money they've stolen in broad daylight which is many time more than this. Confused people. Case of the poor man being suppressed. Na God go judge all of una

Toyin Abolumo said...

Wait, if they are to run concurrently, that means he only has 3 years abi? So what's the point of the 39 years then? Stupid reasoning

madeline muller said...

what a headline, but it seems people have issues reading and understanding, from this article i can understand he started his sentence from when he was arrested, which is from may 2011… and since all the charges are running concurrently he only serves a maximum of 3 years.. therefore he would only spend 3months in prison. since thats what he has left.

Anonymous said...

Thank you jare. Seems ppl just read without understanding. 'concurrent' means running at the same time.
He wil be out this year ooooo.

You are very dumb. 3years for each count and he has 39 counts. So do the math.

Why must people steal before they can do anything in this country. I think if u are caught, u should pay for it.
