The Ibadan Zonal Office of the EFCC on Friday 29 September, 2017, arraigned four suspected Internet fraudsters - Omosehin Sina, Oladimeji Oladayo, Olowosagba Olamilekan Samson and Afilaka Oluwole Michael - before Justice Ayo Emmanuel of the Federal High Court Ibadan, Oyo State on separate charges bordering on possession of documents containing false pretense.

While Omolehin and Oladimeji were arraigned on a six-count charge, Olowosagba and Afilaka were docked for four and three counts respectively.

They pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
In view of their plea, prosecuting counsel, Harrison Ibekwute approached the judge for a trial date and since there was no application for bail before the court, the judge remanded the accused in Agodi prison.

The case was adjourned till 31 October 2017 for the commencement of trial.
