A bartender has landed in serious trouble after stealing his boss’ ATM and withdrawing money with it.

A court in Ibadan has found a bartender guilty of fraud.

Godwin Job, 35 was on Tuesday sentenced to eight years in prison for illegally withdrawing N1,079,290 from a Fidelity Bank account belonging to his boss, Olufemi Joseph Odusanya.

In the course of the investigation, the EFCC discovered that Job made 14 transactions within two hours to steal the money from his boss.

Job was convicted by Justice Bayo Taiwo of the Oyo State High Court in a two-count charge bordering on stealing, filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan zonal office.

Following an investigation into a petition from his estranged boss, the Commission arraigned Job on August 17, 2020 to answer for the criminal allegations against him.

The charges are: “Godwin Job (a.k.a Nifemi) “M’ sometime in August 2019 or thereabout, at Ibadan, within the jurisdiction of this court did steal an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) Card, the property of Olufemi Joseph Odusanya, and thereby committed an offense punishable under Section 390 (9) Criminal Code, Cap 38, Laws of Oyo State 2000.”

“Godwin Job (a.k.a Nifemi) “M’ sometime in August 2019 or thereabout, at Ibadan, within the jurisdiction of this court did steal the sum of One million, Seventy-Nine Thousand, Two Hundred and Ninety Naira (N1,079,290), the property of Olufemi Joseph Odusanya, and thereby committed an offense punishable under Section 390 (9) Criminal Code, Cap 38 Law of Oyo State 2000.”

The boss had accused Job of stealing his Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card through which he withdrew cash and made Point of Sales (POS) transactions totalling N1,079,290.

Though he pleaded not guilty upon arraignment, the judge held that the prosecution was able to convince the court beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused indeed committed the unlawful act.

He then found him guilty as charged and sentenced him to four years in prison in each of the charges, which will run concurrently from the day of conviction.

He also ordered that Job to refund the money stolen to his victim.
