The Kwara State High Court, Ilorin, on Monday, June 21, sentenced a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Oyeyemi Caleb, to two years imprisonment for a romance scam.

Oyeyemi, 21, was arrested by the EFCC on March 16. The commission said Oyeyemi posed as a white online prostitute to defraud one Wilson (a white man) to the tune of $100 (N41k) to offer him s*x.

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.

“The plea of guilt entered by the defendant is a total admission to the crime,” she said. The judge ordered that his phones and bank draft of N80,000 which he gave to the EFCC be forfeited to the Federal Government.
