Kano businessman jailed for seven years over N6.5m fraud

A Kano-based businessman has been convicted and sentenced to seven years imprisonment, with no option of fine for obtaining property, valued at N7, 677,000 under false pretense.

 

Jamilu Sule was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission following a petition which alleged that he obtained property of the complainant worth N7, 677,000 under false pretense.

 

He was arraigned by the Kano Zonal Command of the Commission, on Wednesday, June 22, before Justice Dije Abdu Aboki of the Kano State High Court, on a one-count of obtaining by false pretense.

 

The Commission’s spokesman, Tony Orilade, in a press statement stated that during his first trial in 2019, the anti-graft agency said Sule was accused of collecting goods, valued at N7, 677,000, on credit under the guise that he would supply the same to supermarkets.

 

“The Commission’s investigations revealed that the defendant is in the habit of collecting goods, pretending that he would supply same to supermarkets, but instead divert the goods for his personal use,” the statement said.

 

’Furthermore, the Commission disclosed that it charged the accused before Justice Dije Aboki, on a four-count charge of obtaining goods by false pretense.’’

 

One of the charges reads: “That you Jamilu Sule, between July and August 2018, at Singer Market Kano, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, with intent to defraud, deceitfully obtained some provisions and food items, valued at N7,677,000 only, properties of Mohammed Shariff Ahmad, Ibrahim Dauda Abdullahi and Tajuddeen Abdulrahaman, committing cheating in respect of the said goods and thereby committed an offence, contrary to Section 320 of the Penal Code Law and punishable under Section 322 of the same Law.”

 

Sule was first arraigned on May 21, 2019, during which he pleaded not guilty to the four-count charges brought against him by the EFCC.

 

During the trial, the prosecution counsel, Michael Ojo, called four witnesses and closed his case, while the defendant opted for no-case submission.

Atlanta Subway customer shoots dead female worker for putting too much mayonnaise on his sandwich

A Subway sandwich customer allegedly shot dead one female worker and injured another after too much mayonnaise was put on his sandwich.

 

On Sunday night, June 26,  at around 6:30pm, a customer ordering a sandwich at a Subway connected to a gas station located in the city’s downtown area erupted into a dispute with one of the store’s employees and opened fire. One employee was fatally wounded and another was sent to a nearby hospital.

 

The owner of the Subway told Fox 5 Atlanta that the customer became angry and decided to shoot his two employees over the amount of mayonnaise on their fast-food meal.

 

“Believe it or not, it was about too much mayonnaise on his sandwich,” owner Willie Glenn said in an interview with the news station.

 

The employee who died during the shootout, a woman, has not been identified by police, but the store’s owner reported during an interview with Fox News 5 that the son of one of the employees was present at the time that staff was attacked by the armed customer.

 

“She had a young son that had to witness all of this,” said Mr Glenn.

 

The store’s on-duty manager reportedly returned fire at the suspect but missed, according to the store’s owner.

 

“Everybody wants to carry a gun. Everybody wants to scare somebody wit a gun. It’s scary out here,” Mr Glenn said.

 

Police are still investigating the shooting, reviewing surveillance video, and interviewing witnesses while they actively search for the suspect.
