Fuel subsidy convict ‘faints’ forcing judge to postpone sentencing

High court

A judge has deferred the sentencing of fuel subsidy convicts till Monday after Adaoha Ugo-Nnadi, one of the convicts, fainted.

A Lagos High Court on Friday convicted Walter Wagbatsoma, Adaoha Ugo-Nnadi, and their company Ontario Oil and Gas on an eight-count amended charge of fraud.

The defendants were found guilty on each of the eight counts.

The third defendant, Babafemi Fakuade, was, however, discharged and acquitted.

The judge had taken a 30-minute break ahead of an expected sentencing, but suspended after Ms. Ugo-Nnadi fainted.

    Did she faint when she was scamming and stealing Nigerian money? No sympathy for rogues and sophisticated armed robbers. If PMB didn’t prosecute them she will be the first to start donating to her churches in the village and cities then our corrupt men of God will reward her with the title Dame or Lady of so so churches while the men of God will be given special envelopes in dollars and eat all the foods she prepared then they will pray for her as the pillar of the church and her community. Useless valueless Nigerian society.

    She can equally die from there. Who cares. Why did the judge postpone the sentencing? She can be informed when she wakes up in a prison uniform. Lol.
