EFCC accuser jailed 3 years of fraud

25 April 2016, 19:36

Abuja - George Uboh, the suspect who infamously accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)of diverting proceeds of recovered assets, has been sentenced to three years for fraud.

He has been convicted the Federal Capital Territory High Court Abuja, for his role in converting the property of the defunct Police Equipment Foundation (PEF) to his own use.

EFCC had arraigned the convict on a three-count charge bordering on Cciminal breach of trust involving the sale of PEF vehicles.

He allegedly abused his position as former Head of Security and Communication Department, to convert the properties of the foundation to his personal use.

Uboh claimed that the former National Coordinator of PEF, Kenny Martins, gave him some PEF vehicles to offset the debt owned him by the foundation.

“With his conviction today, Uboh who runs a company called Panic Alert Security System (PASS) completes a double as a certified fraudster having previously been convicted of wire fraud in the United States,” said EFCC Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren.

He was prosecuted after US law enforcement agents carried out a major raid on a credit card and bank fraud ring led by Uboh in Georgia in 1992.

Uboh served time until 2001.

Uboh made the headlines last year with a string of allegations against the EFCC. These were denied.
