 A Federal High Court sitting in Kaduna presided over by Justice Evelyn Anyadike yesterday convicted one Aminu Ya’u, a former cashier of Giwa Local Government Area,  Kaduna State for money laundering. The court found the accused guilty on two counts of money laundering and sentenced to 5 years imprisonment on each count. However, following the plea for mercy by his counsel, D.G. La’ah and submissions of the prosecution counsel M. S. Abubakar that the court should be guided by the recently enacted sentencing guidelines, the judge directed that the effective date of the sentence should be July 2012 when the convict was first arraigned before the court.

Ya’u was accused of running private business enterprise in the name and style of YUZAFA GLOBAL LINK through which he executed contracts in the LGA and deployed the proceeds for the acquisition of choice properties in Zaria, Kaduna State, and establishment of a bakery, block industry and sachet water factory, among others.
