A civil servant within the Ondo State Public Service has been sentenced to seven months imprisonment.

The civil servant, Kamilu Aminu, an accountant with the State Hospital Management Board, was convicted of stealing N7 million.

Aminu, who was attached to the Specialist Hospital in Ikare-Akoko, headquarters of Akoko North East Local Government Area of the state, was said to have committed the crime in 2017.

Justice William Olamide of the State High Court, while delivering the judgment, said all evidence by the convict to absolve himself of culpability in the allegation of stealing government money lacked substance.

However, the judge acquitted the second defendant, Azeez Musa as he emphasized that Aminu solely committed the offence.

While directing that others should be restored to their former positions, Justice Olamide stated that the sentence will serve as a deterrent to other civil servants planning to perpetrate fraud
