Oyedotun Adebowale

A Federal High Court in Ilorin, Kwara State, sentenced Oyedotun Adebowale, a 19-year-old undergraduate, to two years in prison for internet fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s Ilorin Zonal Command, which prosecuted Adebowale on one count before Justice Muhammed Sani, said N21 million was discovered in the bank account of the Kwara State Polytechnic undergraduate.

The EFCC said; “Investigations had earlier revealed that Oyedotun had under his possession over N21m suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activities and a Toyota Camry, which he purchased using his mother’s name.”

Sesan Ola, counsel for the EFCC, reviewed the facts of the case and presented the defendant’s extrajudicial statements, iPhone 12 Promax, the key and particulars of a Toyota Camry confiscated from him, and a N350,000 draft, all of which were allowed into evidence.
