“Nkemdirim was convicted on a one count charge of obtaining by false pretence contrary to Section 15(2)(a) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2002 as amended and punishable under 15(3) of the same Act”

In the light of her arraignment, Christiana pleaded guilty to the charge. In line with her plea, the prosecution counsel, Fredrick O. Dibang prayed the court to convict and sentence the defendant according to the rule of law.

However, the defence counsel prayed the court to temper justice with mercy as his client was a first time offender and a youth who has promise never to go back to the crime.

Justice M.G. Umar thereafter convicted and sentenced the defendant to eight (Months imprisonment without an option of fine.)”
