Yahoo Boy Thrown Into Prison For $1Million Fraud (Photo)

Justice Mohammed Sanni of the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State has remanded a suspected fraudster, Oghenekevwe Innocent Akinnawo (a.k.a Rodriguez Filiberto, Richard Welburn and Scott Mendez) in prison custody, following his arraignment on a seven-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence to the tune of $1,138,000 (One Million One Hundred and Thirty Eight Million Dollars) only.

Akinnawo ran into troubles when he was arrested by 
operatives of the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Port Harcourt Zonal Office on alleged fraudulent activities ranging from love scam on numerous dating sites, obtaining money by false pretences and swindling two Americans: Lucille De Mattos and Patricia Hawks on a phony oil shipment deal.

He was docked on the basis of investigation activities that implicated him. The defendant pleaded “not guilty” to the charges when read to him.
Prosecution counsel, A. Arogbha told the court that he was ready for trial and prayed for a trial date. However, defence counsel, Reuben Wanogho made an application for bail but could not be heard because Arogbha told the court that he was served the application late and needed time to respond.

Justice Sanni thereafter adjourned the matter to March 13, 2019 for the hearing of bail application and remanded the suspected Yahoo boy in prison.

The judge also adjourned commencement of trial to April 8 and 11, 2019.
