The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has secured the conviction of Air Vice Marshal Alkali Mohammadu Mamu. Mamu, a former Group Managing Director of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Holding Company and Air Force Commanding, Training Command, was pronounced guilty by the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja. This followed the appellate court’s reversal of his discharge and acquittal on corruption charges earlier pronounced by Justice Salisu Garba of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The three-man panel of the Court of Appeal, in a unanimous judgement on Tuesday, July 28, 2020, convicted and sentenced Mamu to two years’ imprisonment in respect of one (count two) out of the four counts.

The judgment read by Justice Yargata Byenchit Nimpar, which also had Justices Abdu Aboki and Emmanuel Akomaye Agim acquitted him on three other counts – one, three and four.

Mamu was one of the senior military officers accused of abusing their positions by the Presidential Committee on the Audit of Defence Equipment Procurement (CADEP), which was mandated to look into contracts awarded for military procurement.
