A Lagos High Court in Ikeja on Wednesday sentenced a 35-year-old hairdresser, Miss Mary Eze for fraud without an option of fine.

Justice Joseph Oyewole had found the accused guilty of conspiring with two others to defraud Miss Ogonna Ebubedike, between May and July 2005.

The judge also found her guilty on eight counts out of the 15-count charge levelled against her by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

He, therefore, sentenced Eze to five years on count one and 10 years each on counts 3, 5,7,9,11,13 and 15 respectively.

However, the sentences are to run concurrently and will begin from 2005 when she was first arrested and arraigned for the offence.

The development indicates that out of the 10 years which she will spend in prison, she has already spent five.

In his judgment, Justice Oyewole said, “The accepted testimony of Ebubedike that the defendant acting with one Ikechukwu Ogbu represented to her that they had United States dollars to clean with chemicals, a representation the defendant knew to be false and fraudulently obtained various sums of money from her.”

According to the EFCC, the action is contrary to Section 1 (3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Fraud Related Offences Act, No. 13 of 1995 as amended by Act No.62 of 1999.
