A 47-year-old civil servant, Funmi Salako, was on Thursday, sentenced to two years’ imprisonment by a magistrate’s court sitting in the Iwo Road area of Ibadan, Oyo State, for defrauding a deaf and dumb of N1m.

According to PUNCH Metro, the court, which was presided over by a magistrate, Taiwo Oladiran, was told that the defendant, who is a civil servant with the Oyo State Ministry of Land, Housing and Surveying, collected the money from her victim, one Musibau Ilori, under the pretext of helping him to purchase a piece of land for farming along the Ibadan-Oyo Expressway.

The suspect was first arraigned on June 5, 2017, on three counts of conspiracy, obtaining and stealing. The prosecutor, Sunday Ogunremi, had told the court that the defendant and others now at large conspired to defraud a deaf and dumb by collecting the sum of N1m from him.
