Four Nigerians convicted of a bank heist in Liberia have been deported, following the completion of their 10-year sentence.
Onuegbu Frank Chidozie (40), Francis Ezeji (32), Chukwu Ago (44) and Kingsley Okoro (40) were committed to prison on December 14, 2010, after the court found them guilty of attacking a bank’s branch in Kakata, Margibi County and stealing valuables and cash worth $207,799 (N85 million).
The four were tried under Section 14.32 and 50.5 of the Penal Law of the Republic of Liberia at the 13th Judicial Circuit Court. Liberia’s Justice Minister Frank Musa Dean described the quartet as ‘undesirable aliens’ and directed the Liberia Immigration Service (LIS) Commissioner-General Robert Budy to deport them. According to reports, the four were subsequently deported to Nigeria via Air Cote D’Ivoire.
