Teacher To Spend 7 Years in Prison for Visa Scam
A school teacher, Idris Buhari has been sentenced to 7 years imprisonment for offences bordering on
obtaining by false pretense by Justice J K Omotosho of the Federal High Court Kano.
The convict who was prosecuted on a three count charge brought against him by the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was arrested following a complaint by Abdullahi Salisu Muhammad alleging that he gave the convict the sum of N500,000.00 for the processing of Hajj ticket in April, 2012, after he presented himself as a registered travelling agent. But the convict allegedly diverted the funds to his personal use and all efforts to recover the money or get the ticket were futile.
