The Kwara State High Court, Ilorin, on Monday sentenced a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Oyeyemi Caleb, to two years imprisonment for a romance scam.
Oyeyemi, a 21-year-old native of Odo-Owa in Oke-Ero Local Government Area of Kwara State, was arrested by the EFCC on March 16.
The commission said Oyeyemi posed as a white online prostitute to defraud one Wilson to the tune of $100 to offer him sex.
Justice Adenike Akinpelu, who delivered the verdict when hearing resumed on the case, sentenced the convict to one-year imprisonment on each of the two charges.
The sentences are to run concurrently.
She said: “The plea of guilt entered by the defendant is a total admission to the crime.”
The judge ordered that his phones and bank draft of N80,000 which he gave to the EFCC be forfeited to the Federal Government.
