36-yr-old estate agent gets 9 months imprisonment for cheating

The police arraigned the convict on a three count charge of criminal breach of trust, cheating and misappropriation.

18 Christians sentenced to jail.

The police arraigned the convict for criminal breach of trust, cheating and misappropriation, which contravene Sections 312, 322 and 309 of the Penal Code.

The Judge, Mr Hassan Ishaq, sentenced the convict and gave her an option of N23, 000 fine.

He also ordered her to pay the sum of N610, 000 as fine to the nominal complainant.

The Prosecutor, Mahmud Isma’ila, had earlier told the court that the convict was reported to Karu Police Station by one Florence Monday of Nyanya, Abuja on Feb. 19, 2015.

He said the complainant approached the convict, who claimed to be an estate agent in the month of February, 2015 to get her a three-bedroom rented apartment.

Isma’ila said that the defendant collected the money in cash on the said date, and she absconded with the money, without getting the apartment for the complainant.

“All efforts to get you proved abortive because you could not be traced. Your phone was switched off and you parked out of the house where you used to stay,’’ the prosecutor said.

Isma’ila said that the defendant was sighted in Karshi, Nasarawa State by the complainant, which led to her arrest by the police on May 30, 2017.

After listening to the charge, she pleaded guilty to the offences and pleaded with the court for mercy.
