The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday, October 15, secured another conviction against Nuhu Aliyu, a staff of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, (NNPC)/Nigerian Pipeline and Storage Company Ltd (NPSC).
According to a statement on the anti-graft agency’s Facebook page on Friday, October 16, Aliyu was convicted by Justice Darius Khobo of the Kaduna state high court, Kaduna for fraud.
Aliyu defrauded the NNPC to the tune of N1.8 million in 2017.
He was prosecuted by the Kaduna office of the EFCC on an amended one-count charge of criminal breach of trust and abuse of office to which he pleaded guilty.
After pleading guilty, Aliyu was convicted and sentenced by the judge to pay the sum of N100,000 to the federal government or risk a 10 years jail term.
The EFCC was also ordered by the court to recover the proceeds of the crime from the convict.
