A man, Onyeugo Anayo, has been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment for procuring fake GTB statement of account. However, the trial judge, Idris Baba, of the FCT High Court, Apo, showed leniency to Anayo by prescribing a N50,000 fine in lieu of jail.
The convict, of No. 14 MCC Road, Owerri, had intended to use the document to obtain an American tourist visa for himself. According to the prosecuting police officer, Adesola Michael, the forged account belonged to one Onyeugo Peter Anayachukwu.
