An FCT High Court in Abuja has fixed Oct. 4 to sentence a Polish woman, Dora Gilmaska, convicted of N9 million fraud. Mr Wilson Uwujaren, the Spokesman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in a statement said the convict was arraigned before Justice Abubakar Umar.

He stated that the Polish woman would be sentenced alongside her company, Icon Media and Marketing Agency Limited.

He added that Justice Umar reserved the sentence after the convict was found guilty of a one-count charge of fraud brought against her by the EFCC.

Gilmaska was found guilty of forging and issuing a dud cheque of N9 million to one Tayo Olugbemi sometime in 2012. She was arraigned on Nov. 7, 2012, and upon arraignment, Gilmaska pleaded not guilty to the charge.
