Salami Yusuf Adetola, a citizen who claimed to be a United States lottery agent, has been sentenced to six months in jail for impersonation and cybercrime.

Justice Adenike Akinpelu of the Kwara State High Court in Ilorin convicted Adetola on Tuesday.

He was sentenced alongside AbdulKareem Abdulmojeed Olamilekan, a graphic designer from Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State and Nwabudike Emmanuel Lawrence from Ethiope-East Local Government Area of Delta State for a similar offence.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arraigned the trio on separate charges. They all pleaded guilty.

EFCC counsel, R. A. Alao called witnesses (detectives) who tendered evidence, including fraudulent messages and the devices used to perpetrate the crime.

Justice Akinpelu held that the prosecution proved its cases beyond reasonable doubt.

Adetola was sentenced to six months in prison with N200,000 fine; Olamilekan was sentenced to one year imprisonment with N300,000 fine.

Lawrence bagged a prison term of six months on each of the two counts with an option of N200,000 fine.

The convicts will lose phones and laptops used for the offences to the federal government and must refund their victims.
