N136m fraud: Former Air Vice Marshall jailed

The Federal High Court in Abuja has sentenced a retired Air Vice Marshal, Tony Omenyi, to seven years imprisonment.

Omenyi was sentenced on Thursday for money laundering charges to the sum of N136 million which he was said to have received from a contractor with the Nigerian Air Force, while he was a public officer.

The convict, a former Managing Director of Aeronautical Engineering and Technical Services Limited, a subsidiary company of the Nigerian Air Force, received the money as kickbacks or bribe from Sky Experts Nigeria Limited in 2014.
