Ex-Oyo High Court Deputy Chief Registrar Jailed For The Third Time

Former Deputy Chief Registrar of the Oyo State High Court, Mutiat Omobola Adio has been convicted and jailed for the third time. 

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren said Adio was convicted after pleading guilty to a fresh charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence and issuance of dishonoured cheque.

 The sentencing was done last Friday. Her offence violated Sections 419 of the Criminal Code Law, Cap. 38, Laws of Oyo State, 2000 and Section 1 (1) (b) of the Dishonored Cheque (Offences) Act, Cap. D11, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

 Adio obtained a 2000 Model Toyota Pathfinder SUV valued at N1.5 million from one Fabunmi Olatunji Samuel of Fatai Olanrewaju Motors.

 She lied to him that it would be paid once the cheque she issued was presented to her bank.

The victim released the said vehicle to her but the cheque was dishonoured within three months of issuance for insufficient funds in the account.
