A graduate of Chemical Engineering from the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT), Nwanya Odichukwu, has been sentenced to 12 year imprisonment by a Federal High Court, Enugu over offences bordering on fraud and internet scam. According to a release signed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Spokesman Mr. Femi Babefemi, operatives from the Enugu zonal office of the Commission had on  20th August 2009 arrested Odichukwu at Logon Nigeria Multi Medis Cybercafé located at Chime Avenue, New Haven, during a raid.
The statement said he was caught sending scam emails. Investigation shows that Nwanya was soliciting information on the financial status of unsuspecting victims. A thorough search on him and his residence led to the recovery of a parcel containing an international cashier valued at $2 million, a Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) draft valued at $500,000 in the name of one Mr. B.R. Butler, a United Kingdom International Passport  bearing the name of one Jaxkson Phillips Dennis as well as scanned United States dollar documents. The suspect was subsequently arraigned on a six count charge for committing offences contrary to Section 5 of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Related Offences Act No. 14 and punishable under Section 1 (3) of the same Act. Delivering  his ruling on the matter last Friday, a copy of which was obtained on Monday November 9, Justice Abdu Kafarati sentenced Odichukwu to two years imprisonment on each count charge , bringing the total number of jail term to 12 years. The prison term will run concurrently.
