Justice Fatu Riman of the Federal High Court Kano today sentenced one Mohammed Basiru Abdulkadir to seven years imprisonment for offences bordering on currency counterfeiting.
The convict was arraigned on May 28, 2014 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on a 5-count charge bordering on possession of counterfeit currency. He pleaded guilty to all five counts when they were read to him and was consequently convicted by Justice Riman but the case was adjourned to today for sentencing.
