An undergraduate, Adebowale Taiwo Abiola, has been sentenced to one year imprisonment for romance scam.

Abiola is a 500-level student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arrested him after intelligence about the criminal activities of a fraud syndicate in Lekki.

The convict, who resides at Brownstone Estate, Ikate, Elegushi, presented himself as Burton J. Smith, an American, to defraud his victims.

While using the identity of Smith, an ex-military personnel, Abiola scammed Courtney Selina Kaye, who sent money to him by selling $104,500 bitcoin from her wallet on localbitcoin website in 2019.

After Abiola pleaded ‘guilty’ to the charge, prosecution counsel, I. A. Mohammed, told the court about his plea bargain.
