Under the pretence of being his business partner, the convict deceived one Ya’u Danladi and took the cash intended for the supply of 900 bags of cement.

Ahmed reportedly obtained the funds from the complainant’s account via an interbank transfer.

Aminu moved the money to his own purposes after receiving it. He got evasive after that, refusing to supply the cement or refund the complainant.

Upon arraignment, he pleaded guilty to the one-count charge.

In view of his plea, prosecution counsel S.H Sa’ad urged the Court to convict and sentence the defendant accordingly.
