A former Commissioner for Transport in Imo State, Laz Anyanwu, has been sentenced to three years imprisonment.
Delivering judgement, the presiding judge, K. Lewanya, said Anyanwu was found guilty of fraud, stealing and looting of public funds.

Justice Lewanya held that the convict, by that action, had violated the Public Procurement Act, abused his office and used his office to gain an unwarranted advantage in his dealings.

The former Commissioner, who served during the administration of former governor Rochas Okorocha, was sentenced after he was found guilty of charges preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
