Oyo corper, one ‘loader’ jailed in Ilorin for internet fraud

Date: 2022-08-12

Justice Ibrahim Yusuf of a Kwara State High Court in Ilorin, on Thursday, jailed Adetuberu Christopher Adetoyese, a National Youth Corps member serving in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

He was sentenced to two years imprisonment over internet fraud related offences otherwise known as ‘Yahoo-Yahoo’.

The Court found Adetuberu, 28, guilty of the two counts of cybercrime preferred against him by the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Justice Yusuf while sentencing Adetuberu ordered the forfeiture of a 3-Bedroom flat acquired with the proceeds of the illegal activities, a Lexus car, different brands of phones and a laptop, which are instruments of the crime as well as the sum of N921, 535.49 in his bank account to the Federal Government.

The judge, however, gave the convict an option of N200,000 fine saying his conviction would serve as deterrent to others.

DAILY POST recalls that, operatives of the EFCC while acting on intelligence over the activities of the 419ner also known as ‘Yahoo-Yahoo’ within Ilorin metropolis and its environs recently arrested Adetuberu, who hails from Ilesha, Ilesha West Local Government Area of Osun State at Ogele area of Eyenkorin, Ilorin.

The convict had in the course of investigation revealed that he ventured into ‘Yahoo Yahoo Business’ in 2016 and had among other things built a house with the proceeds of the illegal activities.

Justice Yusuf also sentenced another 30-year-old aluminum fabricator, Olayiwola Tunde Saheed, who acts as ‘Loader’ to co-fraudsters to six months custodial imprisonment at the Correctional Centre in Ilorin without option of fine.

Olayiwola, who hails from Olorunda Local Government Area, Oshogbo, Osun State was found guilty of one count charge of possessing funds which he knew to be proceeds of unlawful activities preferred against him by the anti-graft agency.

The trial judge, in his judgement, said that he found merit in the prosecution’s case adding that the admittance of guilt by the defendant was enough evidence to convict him.

He sentenced Olayiwola and ordered that the Toyota Camry car recovered at the point of his arrest, his phone and a laptop, which are instruments of the illegal activities be forfeited to the Federal Government.
