Lawyer Wants Penal, Criminal Codes Amended To Discourage Fraud

Following the recent trial and sloppy conviction of a former director at the Police Pension office, a legal practitioner, Chris Akiri has condemned corruption in Nigeria insisting that the scourge is rife in the country.

Mr Akiri, who was a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, said the sentence handed to Yakubu Yusuf, who pleaded guilty of embezzling pension monies worth over N23 billion was  a slap on the faces of Nigerians.

He said Mr Yusuf was arraigned before the Abuja High Court under the provisions of section 309 of the penal code of the FCT Abuja 2007 which stated that “whoever commits criminal misappropriation shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years or with fine or with both.’’

Mr Akiri advised that the National Assembly amend both the penal and the criminal codes in order to provide stiff penalties that would discourage corruption among public officials.
