June 29, 2016 – Picture: Former Diamond Bank Manager Ikechukwu Chukwuma Jailed For Stealing N28 Million

Former Diamond Banker accused of stealing N28 million Naira from the bank in 2012 has been jailed.

The former Resident Internal Control Auditor was today sentenced to 6 months imprisonment by Justice M.A Onyetenu of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt Rivers State and ordered to pay N15million as a restitution to Diamond Bank.

His sentence is to run from March 15th 2016, the day he was convicted.

    Pay N15m as restitution, balance is N13m. That amount is worth going to jail for six months. To me, the criminal won the case.

      You are damn right @ Methu. The judgement makes no sense at all. That means keeping half of that money and since they are going to prorate his sentencing, that means he is not going to serve any jail time apart from the time he already spent. I suspect this Judge. He must have cut his own share of the deal. Six months for #28,000,000.00. Other criminal may want to go for this.

    The 15m given to him to pay is too small

    Perhaps the allegations were based on stealing #28million, but prosecution was able to prove stealing of#15m. If that is the case the judge should not be blamed.

    Okay, now I get it. At first I thought there was error in calculating what he owes back but now I see the judge considered inflation. So this will be the first court since the Greek time to consider inflation. Only in Nigeria

    It is easier to sentence people like this very fast leaving behind those hard core thieves in government who have billions of dollars in their accounts without any prosecution.
