It was a terrible consequence for impassionating an officer of the law when a High Court sitting in Kaduna State sentenced one Abdulazeez Isah to three years imprisonment for parading himself as an operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

According to reports, he was arraigned on one-count charge bordering on impersonation by the Kaduna Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

____“That you Abdulazeez Isah sometime in November, 2023 in Kaduna within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, committed an offence of impersonation to wit: falsely presenting yourself as a staff of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to the general public, which pretence you knew to be false and thereby committed an offence contrary…..to and punishable under Section 142(1) of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017.”

Upon arrest, he admitted financing the production of fake T-shirts, identity cards and caps of the Commission found in his possession.

____However, he pleaded guilty to the charge when it was read to him.


In his judgment, Justice A. Isiaka convicted and sentenced him to three years imprisonment or a fine of One-Hundred-and-Fifty-Thousand Naira.
