Justice Tukur Mu’azu of Kaduna State High Court has convicted and sentenced the immediate past sole Administrator of Kaura Local Government, Kaduna State, Ibrahim Akut Baba to seven years imprisonment without the option of fine.
Ibrahim was convicted for offences bordering on obtaining money by false pretence.
The convict was arraigned before Justice Mu’azu on January 7, 2016 on allegation of defrauding one Alhaji Auwal Ibrahim of Rahusa Investment Limited, Sabon Hunkuyi, Kaduna state sometime in 2011, over a phony gas supply contract.
The victim allegedly paid the convict N1million for the supply of five trucks of gas at the rate of N.2million per truck.
But after the payment was made, the victim neither received the product nor gets a refund.
