COURT SENTENCES “YAHOO” NATIVE DOCTOR TO 97 YEARS IN PRISON 

 

Joseph, also known as “Dr Omale”, was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on a seven-count charge bordering on obtaining by false pretence.

She, therefore, sentenced him to seven years on court one without any option of a fine and sentenced him to 15 years each on Counts two to seven without any option of fine.
The judge, however, ordered that the sentence is to run concurrently, excluding the two years he had spent in prison custody before being convicted.

In his allocutus before the sentence, counsel for the defendant, Johnbull Adara, urged the court to temper justice with mercy, adding that the court should take into account the fact that the convict has been in custody since August 5, 2016.

While pleading that the court should give a minimum sentence to the convict, Adara urged the court to consider the fact that Clement is a first-time offender.
