A High Court sitting in Kaduna State has convicted and sentenced one Idris Musa to ten years imprisonment for ATM fraud.

The court, led by Justice A. A Bello, sentenced the convict on Tuesday, January 9, 2024 after pleading guilty to one-count charge bordering on cheating.

He was arraigned by operatives of the Kaduna Zonal Command of the EFCC.

The one-count charge reads: “you, Idris Musa, sometimes in July, 2022 in Kaduna within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, dishonestly induced one Idris Ismail by swapping his Zenith Bank ATM card under the guise of helping him withdraw money, an act which you knew to be false and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 306(a) of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017 and punishable under Section 307 of the same law”.

The defendant pleaded guilty to the charge when it was read to him, which prompted prosecution counsel, M.U Gadaka to pray the court to convict him accordingly.
