Court Jails Man For Internet Fraud.

Court Jails Man For Internet Fraud.

Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has

convicted and sentenced one Daniel Walter Anga to prison for

internet fraud.

He was prosecuted by the Port Harcourt Zonal Command of the

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on a one-

count charge of impersonation and using false identities in Gmail

and Facebook for romance scam.

He pleaded “guilty” when the charge was read to him, following

which prosecution counsel, I. Agu, tendered some documents in

evidence and called a witness, ASE 1, Yahaya Yusuf Abbas, an

operative of EFCC who testified against him.

The documents tendered by the prosecution included: the

statement of the defendant, incriminating print outs from the

defendant’s mobile device and his iPhone 12.

Based on the evidence tendered and the testimonies of the

witness, Agu prayed the court to convict and sentence

accordingly, while defence counsel J. J. Simon asked the court to

temper justice with mercy, stating that the defendant was a first-

time offender and did not waste the time of the court.

Justice S.D Pam thereafter sentenced Anga to one year

imprisonment or a fine of Twenty Thousand Naira.
