An in-law to the former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Dr John Abebe has bagged seven years imprisonment for forgery and laundering.

Justice Mojisola Dada of Ikeja Special Offences Court gave the verdict on Saturday with an option of a fine to the tune of N50 million to be paid within 30 days in lieu of imprisonment.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC arraigned Abebe, who is the younger brother to the late former First Lady, Stella Obasanjo before the court for forgery.

The EFCC, in the charges, claimed that Abebe “knowingly forged” a November 30, 1995 letter written by BP Exploration Nigeria Limited to Inducon Limited.

The trial judge gave the judgement after establishing that the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and convicted him accordingly.
