Court jails aluminum fabricator, two others for love scam

Date: 2021-09-16

A 24-year-old aluminum fabricator, Olamide Adelokun, and two others have been sentenced to various jail terms by a Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin for offences bordering on love scam.

A statement by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Wednesday identified the other convicts as Kudus Omotosho, 27, and Muhammed Arikewuyo, 23.

The Ilorin Zonal Command of the EFCC prosecuted the three men on separate charges before Justice Sikiru Oyinloye of the Kwara State High Court.

They pleaded guilty to the charges preferred against them and entered into plea bargain agreements.

Upon their pleas, counsel for the EFCC, Sesan Ola, urged the court to convict and sentence them based on the plea bargain agreements.

In his judgment on the cases on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, Justice Oyinloye said the prosecution proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.

The judge sentenced Adelokun to one year imprisonment each on count one and two with a fine option of N250,000 each on the two counts.

He ordered that the iPhone 11 which he used to perpetrate the crime be forfeited to the Federal Government. Similarly, the judge sentenced Omotosho to one year imprisonment each on count one and two with a fine option of N250,000 on count one and N300,000 on count two.

Justice Oyinloye also ordered that Omotosho’s white Lexus ES 330 saloon car which he acquired with the proceeds of crime and a Macbook laptop, an HP laptop and one iPhone11 used to perpetrate the crime be forfeited to the Federal Government.

By the same token, Arikewuyo bagged one year imprisonment with a fine option of N250,000.

The judge also ordered the convict to forfeit a bank draft of N162,000 which he raised as restitution to his victims, as well as the iPhone 11 which he used to perpetrate the crime.
