EFCC arrests 42 internet fraud suspects in Anambra, Enugu

The 25-year-old convict, was prosecuted on two-count charge by the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

He scammed his victim through impersonation via Ohio Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Portal in the United States of America to obtain the sum of 6,328 US dollars sometime between December 2020 and June 2021.

The defendant pleaded guilty to the charges.

Following his plea, counsel to the anti-graft agency, Andrew Akoja, urged the court to convict the defendant on his plea bargain agreement dated August 4, 2021.

The defence counsel, Mr T.A. Hammed did not oppose the position of the EFCC counsel.

In his judgement, Justice Oyinloye, said, ” this honourable court, has not seen any reason why the defendant should not be convicted, as the prosecution has placed enough materials before the court to prove its case beyond reasonable doubts.”

The trial judge pronounced Adigun guilty and sentenced him to one year in prison with an option of N250,000 fine.
