Okunrobo Osarenren Evans has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment by a Special Court sitting in Lagos.

This was after the suspect was arraigned before Justice .M. Dada of the Special Offences Court, Ikeja, by the EFCC, Lagos Zonal Office.

The convict was first arraigned in 2017 on a three-count charge bordering on forgery, an offence contrary to Section 363(1) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011.

According to one of the count charges, Evans in 2009, forged a birth certificate in the name of Okunrobo to commit the offence.

But the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against him by the prosecution, thereby leading to his trial.

During trial, the prosecution counsel, Ufoma Franlin, called four witnesses and tendered several documents that were admitted in evidence by the court.

At the resumed hearing on Wednesday, the prosecution counsel urged the court to impose maximum sentence on the convict on the grounds that the defendant had wasted the time of the court.

However, counsel to the defendant prayed the court to “temper Justice with mercy”, adding that “my client is a first-time offender and has a wife and children to cater for.”

Delivering judgment, Justice Dada said the prosecution had clearly proved its case beyond reasonable doubt with absolute diligence.

Justice Dada, therefore, convicted and sentenced Osarenren to seven years imprisonment on each count.
