The Ibadan zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Thursday, March 7, 2019, arraigned an internet fraudster, Oyinloye Oyetola Jubril before a Federal High Court, sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Jubril was arraigned before Justice P. I. Ajoku on a four-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence and document falsification.
He was arrested by operatives of the EFCC following petitions submitted to the commission early in the year.
His charge paper partly reads: “That you, Oyinlola Oyetola Jubril ‘m’ sometimes in the month of January 2019 or thereabout, at Ibadan, Oyo State, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, you were in possession of a document in which you falsely represented yourself as a woman by name Deloise Sleele, and you sent this document containing false pretence to one Richard Nemes who resides in the United States of America, in order to obtain money from him by false pretence, and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 6 and punishable under Section 8 (b) of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006.”
Jubril pleaded “not guilty” to the charges.
