Fake online Car Seller (Moses Kola Olayemi) Bags Three Years Jail Term

Justice Farouq Lawan of the Kano State High Court, March 28, 2014, convicted and sentenced one Moses Kola Olayemi to three years imprisonment and  a fine of N120, 000 (One Hundred and Twenty Thousand Naira Only) on three count charge of conspiracy and criminal breach of trust.

The convict is said to have conspired with one Ahmed Rufai to deceive one Dr. Sa’id Danladi Abubakar into believing that they were online car sellers.

The accused person had earlier pleaded not guilty to a five count charge. But when the case came up today, he pleaded guilty to an amended three count charge.

Based on his plea, counsel to EFCC, M.M Gambo urged the court to convict the accused accordingly.

However, the defense counsel, A.A Sani, pleaded with the court to tamper justice with mercy in sentencing the convict as he was a family man with aged parents and many dependants.

Justice Lawan consequently convicted the accused on all the three counts under Sections 93 and 311 of the Penal Code. The sentences are to run concurrently.

One of the count reads “that you Moses Kola Olayemi and Ahmed Rufa’i at large sometimes in 2010 at Kano within the jurisdiction of this honorable court entrusted with the sum of N2, 000, 000 (Two Million Naira Only) by Dr Abubakar Sa’id for the purpose of selling to him two cars dishonestly misappropriated same and you thereby committed an offence under section 311 and punishable under section 312 of the Penal Code.”
