Metro Court Declines to Convict Accused Fraudster - Daily Trust Nigeria

A Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday declined to sentence an accused, Godwin Nwaichie, who pleaded guilty to a charge of obtaining N9.1 billion under false pretence.

Justice Ibrahim Buba declined to sentence the accused after hearing the review of the facts. In the facts, Nwaichie who maintained his guilty plea, said that the amount he obtained was not up to N9.1 billion as stated in the charge sheet.

The accused did not accept that he had obtained under false pretences the actual amount he was being charged with stealing as documented in the charge sheet, and Justice Ibrahim Buba said: "Since the accused did not accept the actual amount he was charged with, the court will not convict him."
