On Thursday, the Akwa Ibom State High Court in Uyo, the state capital, sentenced one Ita Michael Sampson to three years in jail for falsely pretending to be an official of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The convict, who is 60 years old and a native of Odot in the state’s Nsit Atai Local Government Area, went to First Bank of Nigeria, Etinan Branch, on July 29, 2010, and falsely represented themselves as officers of the EFCC and the Department of State Services investigating a petition from Abuja against the bank manager, Mr Godwin Daniel.
In his decision, Justice Okon Okon found Sampson guilty of impersonating.
Justice Okon, who described the convict as “a miserable liar and a serial fraudster, that nemesis has caught up with, held that the convict did not show remorse, but made efforts to cajole the court through his “fairy tale of defence.”
He further held that Sampson is not a decent member of society and constitutes a danger to public safety.
The court held that the convict should be kept away from public glare for some time in the hope that he would learn his lessons and turn a new leaf.
