The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, secured the conviction of one Anyalebechi Wilson Nwachukwu before Justice F. A. Olubanjo of the Federal High Court, sitting in Umuahia, Abia State.
Anyalebechi had been arraigned on May 5, 2014 on a 10-count charge bordering on forgery and obtaining money by false pretences to the tune of N1.7million (One Million Seven Hundred Thousand Naira).
The convict had initially pleaded not guilty to the charges when they were read to him.
However, prosecution counsel, Mainforce Adaka Ekwu, urged the court to commence trial, when the convict later pleaded guilty to all the charges preferred against him.
Delivering his judgement, Justice Olubanjo found the accused person guilty on the 10 counts and sentenced him to three years imprisonment on each of the counts without an option of fine.
The sentence is to run concurrently from the date of his arrest.

A previous Petroleum Minister, Don Etiebet has responded to the outcome of the Akwa Ibom. Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that sat in Abuja. As indicated by him, the decision was a fraud and suppression of the people’s will. Talking with columnists in Uyo on Wednesday, Etiebet said that he and different senior citizens in the state were determined to return majority rules system to Akwa Ibom State.
He said the All Progressives Congress in Akwa Ibom State had appealed for total cancelation of the governorship decision. Etiebet demanded that the decision should have been totally canceled, including that the environment was not favorable for the general population to participate.
His words: “We will always stand by the truth in this state. We have to work hard to ensure that this state belongs to all Akwa Ibom people, not to a group of hooligans, cult boys, or thugs.
“We are not going to submit to any intimidation by anybody. Who in this state has not benefitted from me that I should be afraid of?
“We want to return this state to democracy; we want to return this state to a situation where people will come out and cast their votes for the candidates of their choice. Right now, there is no such environment.”
