Court sentences 60-year-old EFCC impostor to three years imprisonment

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.
