Court Sentence Illegal University Owner To 10 Years Imprisonment

By | On June 23, 2017 (5 months ago)

The Federal High Court sitting in Akure has sentenced one Dr. Martins Olurankinse to ten years imprisonment on a nineteen-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Olurankinse ‘s ordeal followed a petition dated July 22, 2008 from the National Universities Commission (NUC) alleging that he operates an unapproved institution in the name of Open International University, Collombo Sri-Lank, Akure and using the said institution to obtain money by false pretence from unsuspecting students.
Upon arraignment, defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges when they were read to him.
The defendant was first arraigned before Justice G.C Okeke but the matter suffered a setback after the Judge retired and the defendant was arraigned afresh on February 28, 2013 before Justice I.M Sani.
After a successful trial with the prosecution presenting four witnesses including one blessing Awogbami Ayobami (one of the victims) and the testimonies of the defence, Justice Sani convicted the defendant on five counts and discharged him on fourteen counts because the victims could not come forth to testify.
He was sentenced to two years imprisonment on each of the counts making ten years without option of fine. He is also to compensate the victim.
The sentence is however to run concurrently.
