A Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Fada, Zaria city has sentenced one Ebong Joy Akpan, a staff of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria and her daughter to six-month and seven years imprisonment, respectively, for faking a kidnap.

Joy Akpan and her daughter, Inyene Akpan, a final year student of the school, were found guilty of criminal conspiracy, giving false information with intent to mislead public servant and fabrication of false evidence by Chief Magistrate Abdullahi G. Maigamo Esq.

According to court papers obtained by our correspondent, Ms Akpann faked the kidnap of her daughter, Inyene, and turned back to accuse her adversaries in the politics of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), ABU Chapter.

Those she accused include Muhammad Gimba Alfa, Mohammed Inusa, Lawal Yakubu Hunkuyi, Haruna Mohammed, Salisu Isa and Rev. J. F Bukkah; all staff of the ABU.

However, after investigation by the police and subsequent proceedings at the court, Chief Magistrate Maigamo found Ms Akpan and her daughter, Inyene, guilty on the three count charges.

They were therefore simultaneously sentenced to six-month imprisonment with option of N25,000 fine and seven years imprisonment with option of N75,000 fine under section 97(2) and 140 as well as 158(2) of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 1991.
