NYSC Member Who's A Yahoo Boy Nabbed Over Big Fraud

The Enugu Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on December 17, 2018 arraigned Ogbonna Victor Chibuzor, a serving member of the NYSC before Justice A.M. Liman of the Federal High Court, Enugu.

He was docked on a five-count charge bordering on 
intent to defraud, and possession of fraudulent documents contrary to Section 6 of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act 2006 and punishable under Section 1 (3) of the same Act.

Ogbanna’s arrest was sequel to series of raids carried out by operatives over the past one week in which several suspected fraudsters in their early 20s, alleged to be engaging in online fraud, were arrested having been found to be living a flamboyant lifestyle not commensurate to their means of livelihood.

Analysis carried out on the computer of the suspected fraudster revealed certain incriminating documents intended to be used in swindling gullible Nigerians and foreigners alike.

Further investigations disclosed that Ogbanna used his e-mail address to send unsolicited emails to his victims using fake or stolen identity to legitimize his nefarious activities.

He pleaded “not guilty” to the charges preferred against him occasioning his counsel E.O. Isiwu to move a motion for bail, which was opposed by EFCC prosecuting counsel, Innocent Mbachie.

The presiding judge, however, granted bail to the defendant in the sum of N500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand Naira) and one surety in like sum. The surety, he ruled, “must have a landed property in Enugu which must be verified by the Commissioner of Lands”. 

Ogbonna was remanded in prison custody until he fulfils his bail conditions. The case has been adjourned to January 30, 2019.
