The Lagos Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has secured the conviction of four Internet fraudsters, Kunle Omoniyi;  Bassey Odo, Paul Adebisi and Temitope Samson, who were arrested in different parts of the state recently.

The convicts were all charged with offences bordering on possession of documents containing false pretences and involvement in other forms of Advance Fee Fraud.

While Omoniyi, Odo and Adebisi were convicted and sentenced by Justice Mojisola Dada of the Lagos State High Court, Ikeja, Samson was convicted and sentenced by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Special Offences Court, Ikeja, Lagos.

The EFCC had, on August 10, 2020, arraigned Omoniyi on a three-count charge, following intelligence received about his criminal activities, to which he pleaded guilty.

Delivering her judgment, Justice Dada sentenced him to 18 months in prison commencing from the date of conviction, with an option of N250,000 fine.

The Judge also ordered that two small gold chains, one big gold chain with two pendants and iPhone 11 Pro Max mobile phone recovered from him should be forfeited to the Federal Government.

Odo’s travail began after the Nigerian Postal Service, NIPOST, petitioned the EFCC on January 20, 2020, accusing him of compromising its official email account, emsnigcsu@yahoo.com by creating a pseudo account, emsrugcs6@gmail.com, which was used to defraud unsuspecting citizens.

He was also ordered to forfeit to the Federal Government one dark black iPhone X, one App laptop, and one Macbook laptop, which was recovered from him.
