Court sentences two civil servants to 105 years imprisonment

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday sentenced two civil servants, Mohammed Audu and Yusuf Ayodeji, to 105 years imprisonment.

Both civil servants were sentenced for fraudulent activities.

They were procurement officers in the office of the accountant-general of the federation, and were arraigned in July 2016.

Audu was arraigned on a 10-count charge while Ayodeji faced a five-count charge, both bordering on conspiracy, abuse of office and awarding contracts to companies in which they had interests.

They were in charge of a World Bank project known as Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS), an economic reform governance project.

In his judgment, Yusuf Halilu, the judge, sentenced Audu to seven years imprisonment on each of the 10-count charge, amounting to 70 years.

Halilu also sentenced Ayodeji to seven years each on each of the five-counts charge, amounting to 35 years imprisonment.
