Lateef Lawal-Akapo, justice of an Ikeja high court on Monday sentenced a court registrar, Oluronke Rosolu, to 10 years imprisonment for defrauding Ishaya Bamaiyi, a former chief of army staff, of $330,000.

Rosolu was convicted on all the two counts charge of conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretences brought against her by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Lawal-Akapo while sentencing Rosolu said: “The representation that she never collected $330,000 from the complainant is deceptive; the accused could not provide a strong alibi for her whereabouts when the fraud occurred. “I find the accused guilty as charged.

As a registrar of court, the accused should have been an image maker of the judiciary, but she acted in the contrary.
