Fraudster Bags Five Months for Destroying Evidence in Kaduna

Fraudster Bags Five Months for Destroying Evidence in Kaduna
Justice Darius Khobo of the Kaduna State High Court on December 6, 2022 convicted and sentenced one Alfred Kelvin Paul to five months imprisonment for destroying evidence.

He was convicted after he pleaded guilty to an amended one count charge.

The charge reads: 

"That you, Alfred Kelvin Paul sometime in June 2022, at Kaduna within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, during the process of effecting arrest on you by the officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission deliberately destroyed your iPhone 11 Pro with the intention of preventing same from being produced or used as evidence in court and you thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 129 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017”.

The fraudster ran into trouble when he smashed his phone (iPhone 11 Pro) in the course of his arrest by operatives of the Kaduna Zonal Command of the EFCC. He later confessed he took the step to prevent EFCC officials from discovering that he had been convicted for fraud and that his accomplice logged onto the Snapchat application with a fake name, Charlotte White, using his phone.

Based on his plea, Justice Khobo convicted and sentenced Alfred to a term of five months imprisonment without an option of fine.
