Court Convicts Man for $150 Investment Scam

The Lagos Command of the EFCC on May 30, 2022, secured the conviction of one Adeyemi Emmanuel before Justice Sherifat Solebo of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos for an offence bordering on retention of proceeds of crime to the tune of $150.

He was accused of engaging in illegal online activities to defraud his victims in an investment scam.

The charge reads: “Adeyemi Oluwashina Emmanuel, sometime between the period of March 2020 and October 2021, within the Ikeja Judicial Division of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud, retained the aggregate sum of $150 obtained from unsuspecting members of the public.”

He pleaded “not guilty” to the charge when it was read to him.
