Buba of the Federal High Court sitting in Enugu, Enugu State on a one-count charge bordering on impersonation and illegal possession of fraudulent documents has been convicted to one month imprisonment.

The convict who is a student of a tertiary institution in the zone, pleaded “guilty” as charged by the EFCC when it was read to him following his arraignment by the Enugu zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC over fraud.

Intelligence report from the anti-graft agency alleged that the convict sometime in 2018, in Enugu presented himself as one Hennman Thompson, a military officer from the United States of America, by means of computer system through ennmanthompson@gmail. com to one Sayrah and other unsuspecting foreign victims who thought they were dealing with a genuine person.
