Yahoo boy gets six months imprisonment 1

An internet fraudster (yahoo boy) has been arrested and sentenced to six months imprisonment.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC Ilorin Zonal Office have arrested Ogundele Adeseye, who was re-arraigned on a one-count amended charge bordering on internet fraud.

He was convicted by Justice Babangana Ashigar of a Federal High Court sitting in Ilorin, Kwara State, on April 10, 2019 after he pleaded “guilty” to the charge, following a plea bargain agreement.

He was previously arraigned on a five-count charge, which was later amended to one count after plea bargain agreement was reached.

The charge reads: “That you, Ogundele Adeseye, sometimes in July 2018 or thereabouts in Ilorin within the jurisdiction of this honourable court by means of fraudulent trick that you are a white Caucasian and interested in having a relationship, obtained the cumulative sum of $500 (Five Hundred Dollars) in form of iTunes gift cards from one Chase Gliglia, an American Citizen whom you met on seeking.com website (sugarbabysite) by chatting with her using the emailbrysonwillians567@gmail.com and thereby committed an offence contrary and punishable under section 421 of the Criminal code act.”


In his plea, Ogundele said: 


“My lord, I have learnt my lessons, I have realized that crime and criminality is not good, I am pleading with your lordship to temper justice with mercy.”

In sentencing him, the trial judge held there was a need to enforce judgement that will serve as a deterrent to would-be internet fraudsters.

“In accordance with plea bargain agreement, I hereby convict the defendant and sentence him to six months imprisonment,” he said.

Ogundele, however, busted into tears when he was being led to Mandala Prisons by the prison officials.
