In a post made by the popular Nigerian blog, Instablog9ja, two young Nigerian yahoo boys were arrested.
These two individuals were arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission( EFCC) and dragged to court on Thursday, July 8, 2021.
The two individuals are known as John Padre Akor and Aondoaver Aondoseer, and they were brought before Justice Abdu Dogo of the Federal High Court during a sitting in Makurdi, Benue State.
They were dragged to court on one-count separate charge bordering on criminal impersonation and obtaining money from foreign nationals under false pretence.
Their charges read;
“That you, John Padre Akor Nigerian, male, adult, on or about September 22, 2020, in Makurdi, Benue State within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud one, John Smith of the United States of America, obtained control over a card as security for a debt and thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 33(5) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, etc.) Act, 2015.”
After the charges were read, they pleaded guilty and were sentenced accordingly. One thing that got people talking was their cheerful faces after they were given the sentence.
