Mama Boko Haram sentenced to five years imprisonment over N71.4m fraud

A high court in Borno sentenced Aisha Wakil, often known as 'Mama Boko Haram,' to five years in prison for fraud. 

In September 2020, she was re-arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission's Maiduguri zonal command on a two-count charge of conspiring and acquiring money by false pretense worth N71,400,000, with Tahiru Daura and Prince Shoyode.

Count one of charge against them read; "That you, Aisha Alkali Wakil, Tahiru Saidu Daura and Prince Lawal Shoyode, whilst being chief executive officer, programme manager and country director respectively of Complete Care and Aid Foundation (a non-governmental organisation), sometime in the year 2018 at Maiduguri, Borno state, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court with intent to defraud, induced one Saleh Ahmed Said of Shuad General Enterprises Ltd to deliver to you 3,000 bags of beans worth N71,400,000 under the false pretence of executing a contract for the supply of same, which you made the said Saleh Ahmed Said to believe that you had the capacity to pay the entire contract sum upon execution, which you knew to be false and you thereby committed an offence, contrary to and punishable under Sections 1(1) (b) and 1(3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006."

Mukhtar Ahmed, the prosecuting attorney, presented four witnesses and various papers that were permitted as exhibits after they pled not guilty to the allegations. 

The prosecution proved the case against the defendants beyond a reasonable doubt, according to Justice Aisha Kumaliya.

In addition, the offenders were ordered to pay N30,500,000 in compensation to the victim. 

If they do not pay the fine, the judge said they will be sentenced to another ten years in prison.
