A High Court sitting in Yola, Adamawa State, has sentenced one Ibrahim Mustapha, a fake medical doctor, to 54 years in prison.
Justice Nathan Musa of High Court 1 handed down the sentence following an earlier plea of guilt by the fake doctor.
Detailing the verdict, Justice Nathan said the court had considered a plea of allocotus made by the convict's counsel and therefore sentenced him on nine counts.
He said, "On counts one to three, I sentenced him six months each with the option of fine of N20,000 each.
"On count eight, I sentence him to three years imprisonment with the option of N50,000 fine.
"On counts four, five, six, seven and 10, I sentenced him to 10 years of prison term on each of the counts without the option of a fine."
Justice Nathan added that all the terms will run concurrently.
