Ex-Councillor Jailed For ‘Robbing’ IDPs

SAN FRANCISCO, May 05, (THEWILL) – A former Supervisory Councillor of Mafa Local Government of Borno State, Umar Ibrahim, and one Bulama Zangebe have been sentenced to two years imprisonment for criminal misappropriation and illegal diversion of food items meant for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

The prosecution counsel of the Maiduguri Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Bar. Khalid Sanusi had told the court that the accused allegedly diverted 300 bags of rice, giving rise to two charges of conspiracy and criminal misappropriation against them.

The prosecutor said the accused committed the crimes on 19 January 2017, three days before their arrest by the EFCC.

He said it was clear that the duo knew that the said bags of rice, which carried the not-for-sale inscription, belonged to IDPs, but they went ahead and sold 180 bags of rice for N1,440,000.00 at the first instance.

He revealed that the said rice was donated by Danish Refugee Council (DRC), a Non-Governmental Organization.

The Defense Counsel, Bar. Mohammed M Monguno pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy because the accused persons have families to cater for.

Justice Fadawu Umar, of the Borno High Court, described the evidences against the accused persons as overwhelming and fined them one million naira each.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I purchase four emails with similar comment. Possibly there is in any manner you possibly can eliminate me from that service? Thanks!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my
    blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
