COURT SENTENCES RETIRED AIR VICE MARSHAL TO PRISON

The Federal High Court in Abuja has sentenced a retired Air Vice Marshal, Tony Omenyi, to seven years imprisonment. Omenyi was sentenced for money laundering charges to the sum of N136 million which he was said to have received from a contractor with the Nigerian Air Force, while he was a public officer.

The convict who was a former Managing Director of Aeronautical Engineering and Technical Services Limited, a subsidiary company of the Nigerian Air Force, received the money as kickbacks from Sky Experts Nigeria Limited in 2014.

Delivering judgment in the matter, Justice Nnamdi Dimgba sentenced Omenyi on the three counts preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Justice Nnamdi sentenced the convict to seven years imprisonment on each of the three counts but ruled that the sentences should run concurrently.

The judge ordered that a company, Huzee Nigeria Limited through which the convict was said to have received the bribe for the contract should be wound up by the Federal Government. He also ordered that the sum of N62 million recovered from Omenyi by the EFCC be forfeited to the Federal Government.
