25-Year-Old Final Year Student Of Unilorin, Sentenced To Prison For Involvement In Fraud

A Final year student of the University of Ilorin (Unilorin) has been sentenced to prison on bases of involvement in cyber crimes. The 25-year-old, who was almost through with University education, had his hopes cut, when he was arrested. The student, whose name is Adigun Oladapo Oludele, had in his possession, a car, 2 laptops and 2 iPhones, all of which were confiscated when he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). After arrest, he was sentenced to the Kwara State High Court on Friday, September 3, 2021. The presiding judge, Justice Sikiru Oyinloye, found Adigun guilty and sentenced him to prison for a year. 

The court also declared that all materials that were confiscated at the site of arrest, should be given to the government. Some materials confiscated are:

1. 2 iPhones (1 iPhone 12 and 1 iPhone 7)

2. Lexus IS250

3. 1 Apple wristwatch

4. 2 Laptops

From investigations carried out, the court discovered the sum of one hundred and fifty-eight thousand in naira (158,000) in the back account of the student, and declared that it should be confiscated and give to the federal government due to evidence of unlawful transaction. This is hopefully to stand as a lesson to all individuals who are engaging in internet fraud. What do you think can be done to say our youth from engaging in fraudulent activity?
