Employment scam: ICPC secures 5-year jail term for NSCDC commandant

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) said it has secured the conviction of a Commandant with the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Christopher Oluchukwu, for his involvement in an employment scam.

ICPC said this in a statement after Oluchukwu was sentenced to five years improvement.

In the case filed by ICPC at the Katsina State High Court 3, the convict was accused of receiving the sum of N200,000, N300,000 and N400,000 respectively from three individuals under the pretext of securing jobs for their children with the NSCDC.

“The victims had reported the matter to ICPC after the convict failed to procure the said job and refused to refund their money,” the statement read.

“During the course of the trial, counsel to ICPC, Ibrahim Garba had in a 9-count charge told the court how the action of the convict negates Sections 8,10 and 19 of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000.”
