Justice Aisha Kumaliya of the Borno State High Court has sentenced Aisha Wakil, popularly known as Mama Boko Haram, and her co-defendants to five years jail terms each.
Mama Boko Haram, alongside Tahiru Daura and Prince Lawal Shoyede, were jailed after they were found guilty of a three-count of conspiracy and stealing to the tune of N66m.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Maiduguri Zonal Command said it secured the conviction and sentencing of the convicts.
The EFCC in a statement on Friday said the convicts on September 7, 2018, while serving as promoters and managers of a non-governmental organisation, Complete Care and Aids Foundation, induced one Ali Tijjani, and his company, AMTMAT Global Ventures to supply N51million worth of processed maize grain also known as “bi-ski” for which they refused to pay.
According to the EFCC, AMTMAT Global Ventures further processed and funded the trip of the trio to Morocco to the tune of N15 Million, a cost they refused to defray.(Punch)
