A First-Class Graduate of Leed City University and accomplice have been jailed 12 Months for $12,000 Internet Fraud. An Ikeja High Court in Lagos on Tuesday sentenced the first-class graduate from Lead City University, Ibadan, Olakunle Akanni, for defrauding an American woman, Diana Huizenga, of over 12,000 dollars (N1.92 million) through an internet love scam.

One of his accomplices, Adesina Akinsola, 30, was also given a similar sentence by the judge.

“The first defendant, Akanni, is to pay the sum of N2 million which is the equivalent of $12, 820 to the victim (Huizenga), as restitution.

“Also, the third defendant, Akinsola, is to pay the sum of N500, 000 to the victim as restitution,” the judge ordered.

Mrs Zainab Ettuh , the EFCC counsel, narrating the facts of the case, told the court that the convicts committed the offences between December 2010 and February 2012  in Lagos.

Ettuh said Akanni conspired with others to obtain various sums of money from the 77-year-old American woman. (Excerpts: LeadershipNG)
