A Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Apo has sentenced a fraudster, Edwin Ogbomwan (aka Thomas Jerry Stars), to two months in prison with the option of paying N1m fine.
Justice D. Senchi also ordered the convict to forfeit his Toyota Camry 2006 model, and iPhone X to the Federal Government.
The convict, who was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, was found guilty of Internet fraud.
The court also sentenced two men — Augustine James and Cyrinus Richard — to 14 years in jail without an option of fine.
They were prosecuted on six charges bordering on conspiracy, obtaining money by false pretences and forgery.
The three convicts were the first men to be convicted by the EFCC in 2019.
