Corper Jailed Over Online Romance Scam, Pretends To Be A Girl

A National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member currently serving in Ibadan, Oyo State, has been found guilty of a two-count sex scam charge preferred against him by the Ilorin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Justice Adenike Akinpelu of the Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin, while delivering judgment on the matter on Monday, sentenced Oyeyemi Caleb to a one-year prison term on each of the counts, to run concurrently. The judge, however, gave him an option fine of N200,000 (Two Hundred Thousand Naira) on each count.

Oyeyemi, 21, a native of Odo-Owa in Oke-Ero Local Government Area of Kwara State, was arrested on March 16, 2020, by operatives of the EFCC based on intelligence reports. According to the report, Oyeyemi allegedly posed as a White lady, an online prostitute to scam one Wilson (a White man) to the tune of $100 US Dollars in order to offer him sex.

He confessed to the crime and was arraigned in court on November 26, 2020.
