Emmanuel who had during an earlier sitting pleaded not guilty,” Thursday changed his plea and admitted having committed the forgery. According to him, he had committed this act with one Gabriel O. Arinze, who was responsible for making the false stamps All three of the forged permits, however, bore the photographs of Emmanuel but under three different names. When asked about the whereabout of Gabriel Arinze, the prosecuting Immigration officer said he had escaped police custody. A bench warrant was subsequently issued for his arrest.


In his judgement, Magistrate Kebba Sanyang, said he could not exercise mercy on the accused as he was in the business of depriving the Gambian government of revenue. He further ordered that the accused be deported back to Nigeria, after serving his sentence. I hope this will serve as a deterrent to others”, he concluded.
