Corps member handed 2 years jail term for internet scam

The Kwara State High Court, Ilorin, on Monday, June 21, sentenced a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Oyeyemi Caleb, to two years imprisonment for a romance scam, following his arrest by the EFCC on March 16.

According to the anti-graft agency, 21-year-old Oyeyemi posed as a white online prostitute to defraud one Wilson (a white man) to the tune of $100 (N41k) to offer him s*x.

Justice Adenike Akinpelu, who delivered the verdict when the hearing resumed on the case, sentenced the convict to one-year imprisonment on each of the two charges. The sentences are to run concurrently.

The judge ordered that his phones and bank draft of N80,000 which he gave to the EFCC be forfeited to the Federal Government.
