A judge at Lagos High Court in Ikeja, on Monday sentenced a middle aged man, Olaolu Salau, to 168 years imprisonment with hard labour being seven years for each count for a 24 count charge.
Salau was imprisoned for defrauding a Lagos based businessman, Solomon Ayoola, of the sum of N2. 5 million.
He gave the verdict following a plea-bargain arrangement between Salau and the Economic and Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The court, in sentencing Salau after he pleaded guilty to an amended 24-count charge preferred against him by the anti-graft agency, ordered that the convict serve seven years each for the 24-count at Kirikiri Prisons in Lagos.
