After reading through the judgement, the judge, Adebukola Banjoko gave the lawyers room to speak for their clients.Justice Adebukola Banjoko, thereafter sentenced Dariye to two years in prison for criminal breach of trust and 14 years for criminal misappropriation of funds.
In her ruling, the judge said: “I can’t imagine a brazen act of looting as in this case.
“I welled up while reading (the judgement) thinking of the victims, it is a litany of woes. They were adults making rational choices. More importantly, I think what touches me the most, your family, they are victims.
“Having found the defendant guilty of these counts of criminal breach trust and criminal appropriation, the court sentences you to two years for criminal breach of trust and 14 years for criminal appropriation.”
The sentences are to run concurrently. The court gave no option of fine.
