Seven young Nigerians have been sentenced to prison for internet fraud.



They were convicted on separate charges of impersonation and acquiring money under false pretenses from unsuspecting foreigners by Justice I. M. Buba of the Federal High Court in Enugu.

Enegide Ifeanyi Kizito, Chukwuajama Collins Arinze, Victor Udekwe, Chukwudi Emmanuel, Nwafor Clinton Chetachi, Utogbo Joseph, and Omilo Collins Chimere are among those who have been convicted.

They were prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

In one of the charges, the EFCC accused Chetachi of impersonating an American military person serving in Syria, Britton Thomas.

The commission said the offence committed in April 2023 was to gain an advantage from Kristine, a Russian woman residing in Latvia.

The offence was contrary to Section 22 (3) (a) (b) of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc.) Act, 2015 and punishable under Section 22 (4) of the same Act.

All seven defendants pleaded guilty when the charges were read to them.

In his verdict, Justice Buba sentenced them to one year's imprisonment with various options of fine.

They will forfeit their phones, which will be auctioned by the EFCC and the proceeds paid into the Federal Government’s Consolidated Revenue Account (CRA).
