Justice Fadau Umar of Borno State High Court 13 sentenced one Aisata Abba Kwana, a Deputy Director of Finance with the Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC) to one year imprisonment on a-two count charge of "obtaining by false pretence" over N3.8 million of her deceased brother.

This followed the dragging of the accused by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to the High Court to secure the conviction of the senior local government official in Borno State for the fraudulent withdrawal of a pension fund belonging to a deceased.

“The convict is hereby sentenced to one year imprisonment on the two counts charge prepared against her with a fine of (N250, 000.00) two hundred and fifty thousand Naira. The years are to run concurrently,” Justice Umar declared.
