Lagos Court Sentence Suswan’s Impersonator To 2 Years Imprisonment

A Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja on Wednesday
convicted and sentenced to two years imprisonment an impersonator of a former
Governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswan.
The convict, Joseph Onoja, was arraigned on an initial
4-count charge bordering on conspiracy to defraud, impersonation, forgery and
using false document. Onoja pleaded not guilty to the charges but later changed
his plea to “guilty” to an amended one count charge.
The judge convicted him on the one-count charge
preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)
and sentenced him to 2 years in prison.
Gabriel was arrested by operatives of the EFCC, in
2014 following a petition that he impersonated Suswan. He had attempted to
extort money from some foreigners under the pretence of giving them contracts.

He also procured a fake international passport bearing
the name of the former governor but with his own passport photograph.
