Internet Fraudster Bags 16 Months Jail Term

A young Nigerian man identified as Temitope Alani Teslim has been sentenced to jail for Internet fraud.

Justice Sherifat Solebo of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos, convicted him for the offence bordering on possession of fraudulent documents.

He was arrested by officers of the Nigeria Army Corps of Military Police, on May 16, 2018 around Ogba, Lagos, and was subsequently handed over to the EFCC.

During investigation, he wrote three statements, in which he confessed that he was into dating scam. He was re-arraigned today on an amended 22-count charge bordering on possession of fraudulent documents.

He pleaded “guilty” to the charges. The prosecuting counsel, Bilikisu Buhari, told the court that the defendant had entered a plea bargain with the EFCC.

After hearing the terms of agreement reached by the prosecution and defence, the trial judge convicted him accordingly, and sentenced him to one year and four months in prison.

Judge Solebo also ordered the forfeiture of an iPhone 7, a silver Acer Chrome and battery power pack, which he used “as the instrumentality of fraud” to the Federal Government.
