Oluremi Olayinka, a staff member of well-known eatery, Sweet Sensation, was on Wednesday convicted and sentenced to 266 years imprisonment for allegedly stealing N8 million from her employer.
According to Premium Times, “an Ogun State High Court ruled that offense is contrary to sections 390(6)(7)(8), 467 and 468 respectively of the Criminal Code Law Cap 29, Laws of Ogun State.”
The report further states that “the court found the convict guilty on all the 34-count charges. She was sentenced to seven years on each of 30 counts and 14 years on the remaining four charges. The sentences are to run concurrently.”
When confronted with the allegation, Olayinka had initially confessed to committing the crime, but then pleaded not guilty afterwards.
However, during the course of the trial the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) presented four witnesses and presented indisputable evidence against Olayinka.
