The Magistrate court in Enugu (The coal city) has convicted and sentenced the General Overseer of Christian Charismatic Movement (CCM), Enugu, Sabinus Onuigbo, to seven years imprisonment for falsification.
Magistrate J.O Umuzulike read the judgment on Thursday, the 12th of December, 2019 following the prosecution of Onuigbo alongside three other pastors, Chukwuma Orji Victor, Nick Nwoye and Tony Chukwu.
The three others were sentenced to three years with an option of Twenty Thousand Naira (N20,000) fine. The judge in his word said the evidence before the court proved the allegation of forgery beyond all reasonable doubts.
The signature of a pastor, Sunny Ndolo, who resigned from the church since 2011, was forged by Onuigbo and his accomplices in the minutes of the church’s meeting held on the 14th July, 2014, as brought to the court by the complainant, Elder Innocent Ngwu.
The judge said, “The sole issue for determination was the forgery of Rev. Sunny Ndolo’s signature. The defence did not debunk or contradict it all through their defence. The prosecution proved their case beyond all reasonable doubt.
The real facts before the court found four of the accused guilty while the fifth accused was not a party to the allegations.
