Justice U. N Agomoh, of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Wednesday, sentenced Anthony Ideozuto to two years imprisonment with an option of fine in the sum of N500,000 for failing to produce an accused person.

Ideozu, who stood as one of the sureties for one, Chima Ojadi, could not produce him for trial.

Ojadi was being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on a nine-count amended charge bordering on conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretence to the tune of N17,000,000.

Having failed to produce the accused person, or pay the sum of N500,000 which was the bond he entered with the prosecution, Justice Agomoh ordered that Ideozu’s bond be forfeited and accordingly sentenced him.

Similarly, the EFCC last Thursday, June 11, secured the conviction of Suntaal Nigeria Limited, represented by the Operations Manager of the Company, Babatunde Oluwole, to two years imprisonment with an option of fine.

Justice Lambo Akanbi of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, found the company guilty of oil theft.

A truck with dual number plate: XA522RGM and XA523RGM, loaded with 22,000 litres of adulterated Automotive Gas Oil (AGO), belonging to the company was intercepted by officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps along East-West Road, Rumumasi, and Port Harcourt in February 2011 without appropriate license.
