Woman Gets 90 Years Jail Over Admission Scam

Woman Sentenced To 90 Years In Prison Over Admission Scam


A woman identified as Mrs Chika Charles has been sentenced to 90 years in prison by a federal high court in Enugu for defrauding students seeking admission into Enugu State University of science and technology (ESUT) to the tune of 5.6 million Naira.

According to a statement released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The convict obtained the money from her victims under the pretense of helping them gain admission into the university through her unregistered non-governmental organisation (NGO) known as Bold and Dynamic Gender Initiative.

It was learnt that she was arrested in 2007 after one of her victims sent a petition to EFCC concerning her fraudulent activities.

The jail term comprises three years on each of the 30-count charge and will run concurrently from the date of her conviction.
