Yahoo boy Sentenced To 29 Years In Prison Over N2m Cyber Fraud.

Justice Fatun Riman of the Federal High Court sitting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, on Monday, May 6, 2019, sentenced one Adegboye Joshua Oluyeyi to 29 years imprisonment for a N2 million cyber fraud. Oluyeyi was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, on Friday, May 3, 2019, on a nine-count charge bordering on cyber crime.

He was convicted for hacking into the email account of one Florence Kentiobong and diverting N2 million into his account by replacing the account information of the victim, with his personal account details, causing the said payment to be made into the account of the convict, instead of the account of the original benefactor. He pleaded “guilty” to the charges and was convicted, accordingly.

One of the counts reads: “That you, Adegboye Joshua Oluyeyi, aka Joshua Adex sometime in February 2018 within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court with intent to defraud did knowingly cause the loss of N2 million only property of Mike Simpson and meant for Florence Kentiobong by altering and inputting false data meant for the transfer of funds and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 14 (2) of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act, 2015 and punishable under the same Section.” While delivering judgement, Justice Riman sentenced Oluyeyi to three years in prison on count one to count eight, and five years on count nine, to run concurrently from the date of arrest being July 21, 2018.
