Court Convicts Abujabased Internet Fraudsters

Abuja-based Okoro Daniel (alias Michael Kani) and James Nicholas, have been sentenced to prison for cybercrime offenses.

Justice O. A. Musa of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Apo delivered judgment on Monday.

Daniel had claimed to be a United States citizen working with the United Nations (UN) as a medical doctor.

The fraudster induced Christiana Morgan, Auriel Correl, and one Phillip, all Americans, to deliver the equivalent of N10million.

The Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) found that he used part of the money to acquire a Lexus RX 350.

However, Nicholas tricked Leongorman Simone Everett to pay N1.5million to him after claiming to be a hacker.

The duo pleaded “guilty” when the charges were read.

EFCC lawyers, E. G. Inalegwu and Abel Adaji requested the court to convict them in line with their plea bargain.

Justice Musa sentenced Daniel to three months in prison with an option of an N100,000 fine.

Nicholas will spend two months in prison if he fails to pay an N50,000 fine.

The convicts are to forfeit all proceeds of crime to the federal government, including the Lexus, iPhone 7, MacBook, phones, and laptops.
