25-year-old Ayeni Peter Oluwatofunmi, who has been impersonating a white American female, Daina Patrick, to swindle unsuspecting victims, on Wednesday, bagged six months jail term in Ilorin.

The offence, according to the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is contrary to Section 321 of the Penal Code and punishable under Section 324 of the same law.

Ayeni was prosecuted on one count charge, which he pleaded guilty to.

Following his guilty plea, Counsel to the anti-graft agency, Rashidat Alao, called a witness who narrated how credible intelligence led to the arrest of the defendant.

The witness, who is an operative of the anti-graft agency, tendered several fraudulent messages printed from the defendant’s device, which the court admitted in evidence.

Alao, urged the court to consider the plea entered by the defendant, his extra-judicial statements, the testimony of the sole prosecution witness and exhibits tendered to convict the defendant as charged.

Justice Mahmoud Abdulgafar, in his judgement, said the ” court is satisfied that the prosecution has proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.”

He sentenced Ayeni to six months jail term and ordered the forfeiture of 200 US dollars which the convict benefitted from the unlawful activity, as well as the phone used to perpetrate the crime to the Federal government.
