A Federal High Court sitting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State has convicted and sentenced a serial internet fraudster, Noble Dainge Tamunoateli to 19 years imprisonment for fraudulent impersonation, possession of fraudulent documents and money laundering to the tune of N14, 751,558.00(Fourteen Million, Seven Hundred and Fifty-One Thousand, Five Hundred and Fifty-Eight Naira).
Mr Tamunoateli was convicted by Justice Toyin Bolaji Adegoke.
Tamunoateli was arraigned on July 19, 2021 on 11-count charges preferred against him by the Uyo Zonal Command of the EFCC. He pleaded “not guilty” to the charges and was granted bail.
However, the court revoked the bail when investigations showed that the defendant presented forged medical reports before the court through his counsel, Ewa Okpo Edmund, aka Street Lawyer.
