Man sentenced to jail for investing customer’s money in MMM

A Karmo Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Thursday sentenced one Hassan Joshua, 38, to two
months’ imprisonment for criminal breach of trust and cheating, bordering on failure to
pay back customer’s N430,000 using the money instead for MMM.

The judge, Alhaji Abubakar Sadiq, however, gave him N 10,000 option of fine and warned
him to desist from committing crime.

The judge also ordered the convict to pay N430, 000 to the complainant.

Joshua, a welder, who resides at Nimasa Estate Gwarimpa-Abuja, said that he paid the
money into the money doubling scheme, Movrodi Mondial Movement.

MMM is social financial network, a mutual aid funding network of ordinary people
helping each other.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Zannah Dalhatu, told the court that one Mr. Fagbo Tubosun of
Gwarimpa Estate reported the matter at Gwarimpa Police Station on Feb. 7.
Dalhatu said that in October 2016, the convict was given the money to construct water
tank and doors.

He said, “After collecting the money, he refused to do the work and he absconded to an
unknown destination.”

The prosecutor said that during police investigation Joshua confessed to the crime.

The offence is punishable under Sections 312 and 322 of the Penal Code.
