PHOTOS: Two Men Bag 14 Years Jail Term For Conspiracy And Obtaining Money By False Pretense


The EFCC on Monday secured the conviction of Pastor Emmanuel Markus Anga and Atin Victor Generous before Justice Abubakar Jauro of Gombe State High Court, on two count charge bordering on conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretense. Anga and Generous are alleged to have in November 2013, deceived David Madison, into believing that they were employees of foreign exchange business, Gora Commanding Resources, which they claimed belonged to Philemon Gora (who is still at large).

Madison was lured into believing that his investment of five hundred thousand would yield him ten percent (10%) interest as returns on a monthly basis. He however discovered later that the 10% on his capital reflected on his account only in the first month of his investment. All his efforts to recover the money afterwards proved abortive.
