Justice O. M. Olagunju of the Court of Appeal, Ibadan, Judicial Division, on March 1, 2019, affirmed the decision of the Oyo State High Court, Ibadan that sentenced a former Deputy Chief Registrar of the Oyo State High Court, Mutiat Omobola Adio to seven years Imprisonment.

According to EFCC, Adio was convicted on the fact that she collected the sum of N9, 200, 000 (Nine Million Two Hundred Thousand Naira) only from her victim as proceeds from the sale of a property located at Plot 10, Block XXIV, Bashorun Estate, Ibadan, but failed to provide the title documents of the property to the buyer.

It was gathered that all efforts made by the victim to either recover the money or have possession of the property yielded no result.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had on Friday, May 18, 2018, secured the conviction of Mutiat Adio.

In affirming the sentence, the appellate court dismissed the appeal of the ex- Deputy Registrar and upheld the judgment of the lower court which convicted and sentenced the former Deputy Chief Registrar of the Oyo State High Court to a seven-year jail term.
