Man Bags One Year Jail Term for Internet Fraud in Lagos

The Lagos Zonal Command of the EFCC, March 1, 2022, secured the conviction and sentencing of one Aliu Tijani before Justice O.O. Abike-Fadipe of a Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos for offences bordering on internet fraud.

Tijani was arraigned on a one-count amended charge to which he pleaded “guilty”.

He had earlier pleaded not guilty when he was first arraigned in December 2021 for the offences, but made a turnaround seeking for a plea bargain, thus necessitating his re-arraignment on an amended charge.

In the amended charge, he was charged with the offence of possession of fraudulent documents containing false pretence, which he used to perpetrate love scam on the internet. Visit our website: for details and more stories.
