    Ekiti: Self-acclaimed pastor, brother jail over N1m NSCDC job deal


    Adewumi Alade, a 30-year old self-acclaimed pastor and his brother, Adewole, 25, are to spend the next six months in jail, so says a competent court in Ekiti, south-west Nigeria.

    Adesoji Adegboye, chief magistrate of Ado-Ekiti magistrate court delivered this verdict without an option of fine.

     Adegboye, while reviewing the case said the prosecutor, Leranmo Caleb, called five witnesses, and the defence counsel, Busuyi Ayeni, called the convicts as his witness.

    According to the magistrate, the evidence of the convicts were not credible, adding that the prosecution proved his case beyond reasonable doubt.

    Tuesday,  Adegboye said he was lenient on the convicts because of the plea of their counsel.

    The convicts were charged with conspiracy, obtaining money under false pretence and defrauding some people that their brother was a civil defence Officer at Abuja.

    Caleb said the convicts committed the crime at Basiri Area between November 2014 and June 2015.

    The prosecution said that the convicts under false pretence obtained one million naira from five different people with intent of giving them work at the civil defence.

    He said the offence contravened section 419,108 of the Criminal Code, Cap C 16, Laws of Ekiti State, 2012.
