The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Lagos Zonal Office, on January 22, 2019, secured the conviction of Temitope  Teslim, for Internet fraud.

Justice Sherifat Solebo of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos convicted Temitope Teslim for the offence bordering on possession of fraudulent documents.

Temitope Teslim was arrested by officers of the Nigeria Army Corps of Military Police on May 16, 2018, around Ogba, Lagos and was subsequently handed over to the EFCC.

During the investigation, he wrote three statements, in which he confessed that he was into dating scam.

He was re-arraigned today on an amended 22-count charge bordering on possession of fraudulent documents.

Temitope Teslim pleaded “guilty” to the charges.

The prosecuting counsel, Bilikisu Buhari, told the court that the defendant had entered a plea bargain with the EFCC.

After hearing the terms of the agreement reached by the prosecution and defence, the trial judge convicted him accordingly and sentenced him to one year and four months in prison.

Judge Solebo also ordered the forfeiture of an iPhone 7, a silver Acer Chrome and battery power pack, which he used “as the instrumentality of fraud” to the Federal Government.
