Mr. Baba was jailed for offences bordering on obtaining money by false pretence, the EFCC said in a statement on Thursday.

The convict was arraigned before Justice Tukur Mu’azu of Kaduna State High Court on January 7 on allegation of defrauding Auwal Ibrahim of Rahusa Investment Limited, Sabon Hunkuyi, Kaduna State in 2011, over a phony gas supply contract.

The victim allegedly paid the convict N1 million for the supply of five trucks of gas at the rate of N200,000 per truck.
