Internet fraudster bags 6 Months jail term in Ilorin


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC) Ilorin Zonal office on Monday, December 23,  2019, secured the conviction of one  Enoch Oluyode before Justice Mahmood Abdulgafar of a Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin.

The convict who was prosecuted by the EFCC on one count of attempt to cheat was sentenced to six months imprisonment.

The charge against the convict reads “That you,  Enoch Oluyode ( Alias John Donna ) sometime in October 2019, at Ilorin within the judicial division of the Kwara State High Court,  did attempt to cheat by personation,  when you pretended to be one John Donna,  a white Caucasian vide Gmail account: and in that guise communicated with one Colin Wison vide Hangout with Colin Wilson, a representation you knew to be false and thereby committed an offense contrary to section 95 of the Penal Code and punishable under Section 324 of the same Law”

The convict had earlier pleaded not guilty during his arraignment in October but later changed his mind and entered into a plea bargain agreement with the EFCC.

During his re-arraignment last Friday,  Oluyode pleaded guilty.

Delivering Judgment on the matter,  Justice Abdulgafar said the prosecution had proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

He ordered that the phone recovered from the suspect be forfeited to the Federal Government while the sentence is without the option of fine.
