Police nab 3 kidnappers, rescue 4 victims in Kogi

Justice Kuewumi Babs of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has convicted and sentenced Abdulhakeem Daud to three years imprisonment for credit card fraud.
The convict was arraigned before the court on Thursday on a two-count charge bordering on possession and fraudulent use of credit card. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was subsequently convicted and sentenced to three years in prison.
Justice Babs sentenced him to two years imprisonment on the first count with an option of N500,000 fine. On count two, Daud was sentenced to one year imprisonment with another option of N500,000 fine. The sentences are to run concurrently with hard labour while the fine shall be cumulative.
Trouble began for Daud when the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, received a petition from Radison Blue Anchorage Hotel, Lagos, alleging that the convict made use of its services and paid all his bills with an un-funded credit card.
Investigations were conducted and several incriminating documents were discovered in his hotel room. Findings showed that the purported credit card the convict used to pay his bills was actually issued to one Thomas Boyer, an American.
