Four Men Bags 2 years Imprisonment Over Immigration Job Scam

Justice in court

Four people—three government employees and one businessman—have been sentenced to two years in prison for participating in a fraudulent immigration job scheme.

The convicted individuals conned a citizen out of N900,000 by posing as employees of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), according to a statement from the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

A state high court in Kano sentenced the defendants, who had admitted guilt to the accusations levelled against them, to two years in prison on each of the four counts brought by the ICPC.

However, the consecutive jail sentences came with the option of a N300,000 fine for each count.

“The convicts, Jibrin Babagana, a businessman, Mohammed Rabiu Isa, a civil servant with the State Ministry of Education, Sabo Abdullahi and Ado Abdul of the State Ministry of Justice, were sentenced to two years imprisonment each by Justice Nasiru Saminu of the Kano State High Court 13, sitting at Bompai, Kano, Kano State, on each of the 4-count charge preferred against them.

“One of the charges reads ‘that you, Jibrin Babagana (m) Mohammad Rabiu (m), Sabo Abdullahi (m) and Ado Abdu (m) sometime in August 2018 at Kano agreed among yourselves to issue fake letters of employment into the Nigeria Immigration Service to the children of Alhaji Bala Rabiu knowing that such letters were fake thereby committing an offence contrary to Section 97 of the Penal Code Laws of Kano State’” the statement said.
