N109m pension fraud: Ex-pension accountant sentenced to 2 years in jail

Yesterday , the EFCC secured the conviction of Babatunde Abisuga, a former accountant of the Federal Civil Service Commission, who is being prosecuted on a 5-count charge bordering on conspiracy, stealing, abuse of office and forgery, before Justice Maryann Anennih of a High Court sitting in Abuja.

He was arraigned on April 3, 2012 on a 12-count charge which he pleaded not guilty to. He later prayed the court to allow him explore the option of plea bargain since the money had been recovered in full and handed over to the Federal Civil Service Commission.

Justice Anennih, granted his prayers and the prosecution in consideration of the request amended the charge. When re-arraigned, he pleaded guilty to the 5-count amended charge and was sentenced to 3 months imprisonment on counts one and two and 6 months imprisonment on counts 5, 6 and 7. They are to run concurrently
