Oyo civil servant jailed over financial fraud

An Ibadan Chief Magistrate Court 1, Iwo Road Ibadan, presided over by Magistrate Taiwo Oladiran has on Friday, sentenced one Ronke Mary Adeleke of the Oyo State Ministry of Lands to a year imprisonment over a financial fraud.

The Oyo State Anti-Corruption Agency (OYACA), secured the conviction of Adeleke after it had investigated a case submitted against her by a victim from whom she dubiously collected the sum of Six Hundred Thousand Naira (N600,000.00).

The court also ordered the convict to refund the said money to the victim within a month.

Adeleke was investigated by the anti-graft agency and found culpable before her case file was handed over the state’s Ministry of Justice for prosecution.

Delivering his judgement, Justice Oladiran, ordered the convict to refund the sum of N600,000 (Six Hundred Thousand Naira) collected from the victim within one month.

"This court convicted today, Adeleke Ronke Mary, a civil servant of the Ministry of Lands for official corruption under the Section 22 of the OYACA Law and the court sentenced her to a year term of imprisonment."
