Justice Josephine Oyefeso of the Lagos State High Court Igbosere, Lagos has sentenced a fraudster, Tunde Martins, to seven years imprisonment for a N30million (Thirty Million Naira) fraud.

The convict had obtained the said sum as a loan from Diamond Bank Plc, with a forged Certificate of Occupancy, C of O, and refused to pay back.

His journey to prison subsequently began after he was arraigned alongside his company, Centre Global Limited, by the Lagos Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, sometime in 2018 on a three-count charge, bordering on obtaining by false pretence, forgery and use of false documents, to which he pleaded not guilty.
