The charge reads:

“That you Matthew Aluya sometimes on the 28th of July , 2017 within the jurisdiction of the High Court of Edo State while being the branch manager of Betowan Nigeria Limited, situate at Uromi, Edo State fraudulently converted the sum of N7,007,447.5 (seven million, seven thousand, four hundred and seventy two naira, five kobo) the proceeds of sales of recharge cards, property of Betowan Nigeria Limited and thereby committed an offence.”

The defendant pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the charge when it was read to him, setting the stage for trial. In the course of trial, the prosecution counsel, Moses Arumemi, called two witnesses and prayed the court to convict the defendant based on the testimony of the witnesses.

The defence counsel, R. H. Orukpe however urged the Court to temper justice with mercy as the defendant had restituted some of the money to the victim.

Justice Irele Ifijeh sentenced the defendant to seven years imprisonment with the option of fine of N200,000.
