An Enugu State High Court, presided over by Justice K.I. Okpe on July 22, 2019 sentenced a pension fraudster, Akpudili Anayo,to six years in prison for a N13million fraud.

EFCC had charged Anayo with forgery, impersonation, conspiracy and stealing. He had on April 8, 2019 pleaded “guilty” to the six counts preferred against him when he was arraigned, and he was convicted, accordingly.

Anayo’s journey to prison started when the Enugu State government petitioned the EFCC alleging fraudulent transactions traced to him.

The State Executive had on May 3, 2017 directed that the May, June and July 2017 pension/salaries of the state pensioners and three other agencies of the state government be paid by cheques after physical verification.

However, at the end of the verification exercise, it was revealed that the convict who was an Ad-hoc staff for the verification exercise, in charge of the system computing the names of the verified civil servants in the state, conspired and used the bank accounts of three fake pensioners to divert funds meant for the pension and salaries of the civil servants in the 17 LGAs of Enugu State.
