Professor Charles Jide-Oni, 11 Others Arraigned For Internet Fraud, Jailed

A sixty-year-old man, Charles Jide-Oni, who
claimed to be a professor and lecturer at the
Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State,
was arraigned before a Federal High Court sitting
in Ikoyi, Lagos State for allegedly obtaining money
under false pretence and engaging in advance fee
fraud.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission,
EFCC, Ibadan zonal office, arraigned the
‘Professor’ and 12 other internet fraud suspects
before Justice Nicholas Oweibo, the Federal High
Court vacation judge for the Southwest zone, on
Wednesday, September 4, 2019.
Jide-Oni’s arraignment was sequel to the EFCC’s
damning findings about the activities of an illegal
financial outfit he floated through which he
allegedly swindled his victims of several millions
of naira.
Some of the victims had earlier written a petition
to the Commission which led to the investigations
that indicted him in the alleged fraudulent act.
Among other 12 suspects equally arraigned are
Olaleye Kolapo, Madukife Ifeanyi Azuka, Fatanmi
Yinka Sunday, Adebayo Bolaji Adeyinka, Adeleke
Peter and Adebowale Fadairo.
Others are Oyewunmi Toulope Michael, Bello
Ayoade Jalal Arikalam, Owolabi Toheeb Toluope,
Abdullahi Abdulazeez Oluwatobi, Temitope Fatolu
and Adesina Adewale.
Fatolu (aka Gold Crumb), however, opted for a
plea bargain and pleaded guilty to a one-count
amended charge of fraudulent impersonation
when he was presented before the court on
Wednesday.
He was subsequently sentenced to one year
imprisonment with effect from June 20, 2019
when he was arrested.
'Gold Crumb' was also to restitue the sum of $
500 (Five Hundred United States Dollars), through
the Federal Republic of Nigeria, to his victim, and
to equally forfeit his iPhone 6, Nokia 103 and Hp
Laptop to the Federal government of Nigeria,
being part of the benefit he derived from his
fraudulent act.
