An undergraduate at the Institute of Management Technology in Enugu, named Okoro Joseph, was sentenced to eight months in prison by the Federal High Court in Enugu for fraud worth more than $ 15,000.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has filed a lawsuit against Joseph before Judge Dugbo Oghogori on five counts that border on impersonation and false pretenses.

He pleaded guilty to the charges.

According to the EFCC, Joseph impersonated Donald Woods and Kennedy Lordan and used images of white men to create scam Hangout and Instagram profiles, which he used to trick American Lisa Spitler into the aforementioned amount.

Following his request, prosecutor Henry Anaso called on the court to find him guilty and convict him accordingly.

Judge Oghori sentenced Joseph to eight months in prison and ordered him to return $ 15,000 to his victim through the EFCC.
