OAU Final Year Student Sentenced to Jail

By Emmanuel Dominic 

On Friday 31 January, 2020, the Justice Patricia Ajoku of a Federal High Court in Ibadan,  Oyo State sentenced a student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Orimolade, to four months imprisonment. He was reported to have defrauded an American citizen of 150 dollars. Orimolade commited this crime on the 28th of September 2019 in Ibadan,  Oyo State.
According to the prosecutor, Orimolade disguised as a US citizen to one American man, Nelisa Snell, that he was deeply in love with him through the internet. 
The evidence before Ajoku, made the court sentence Orimolade, and plea Bargain agreement he had with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
She said; 
 "I have considered the plea bargain agreement entered into by the convict as well as the provisions of Section 270 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA)  2015 in the judgement and I also consider the fact that Orimolade is a very young person preparing for his final exams at OAU and that he had shown great remorse,  However, to serve as a warning to others intending to engage in Cybercrime, Orimolade is sentenced to four months in prison and the sentence starts from the date he was first arrested and detained. All exhibits found in his possession are hereby, forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria ". 

Mr Austin Fadugba the defence counsel , prayed before the judgment of the court, and asked that the court temper justice with mercy in sentencing his client. 
Earlier, Counsel to the EFCC Ibadan zonal office, Mr Babatunde Sonoiki, had told the court of the count amended charge, the convict was facing, which was bordering on impersonation.
