On November 11, 2021, the Nigerian anti-transplant agency, the Commission for Economic and Financial Crimes, EFCC, obtained the conviction of an Omoaregba Ohis on a charge bordering on fraudulent impersonation before Judge A. Akanbi- Yusuf of the Federal Capital Territory High Court, Lube, Abuja.
The defendant was arrested in August 2021 in Abuja’s Kubwa axis after the Commission received credible information about the fraudulent activities of suspected scammers on the internet. The investigation revealed that the detainee used a false identity to trick helpless victims to part with their hard-earned cash.
