Popular Yoruba actress, Yewande Adekoya has reportedly been placed under house arrest in the United States of America for crimes related to credit card scam and bank transfer fraud.

The actress, who became popular with the film, Kudi Klepto was said to have foolishly fallen prey to some Nigerians in Atlanta Georgia who made use of her bank accounts for fraudulent fund transfer.
The award-winning actress, who is married to actor and movie producer, Abiodun Thomas, is ordered to home arrest and instructed to surrender her passport while investigations are still ongoing.

“Her account was used to make some fraudulent transfers in the United States and she was arrested for questioning. This is no new practice among some Nigerian actors and their foreign fraudulent promoters who use them for such crimes and they get huge cuts from such deals,” a source revealed to Kemiashefonlovehaven in Atlanta, US.

The actress, who travelled to the US in October 2017 for the Oodua Image Awards in Houston Texas, hasn’t returned to Nigeria since then. She is said to have stayed back to shoot a film before the criminal act was committed. Married to actor and movie producer, Abiodun Thomas, the “Iyawo Adedigba” actress is still keeping her social media accounts especially Instagram, active. She recently gave a birthday shout-out and posted photos of her husband whose birthday was December 25.

She cannot return to Nigeria until investigations are over.
Recall that in July 2017, another Nollywood Yoruba actress, Lola Margaret Oladipupo was also arrested and put in an Atlanta, Georgia, jail after she was arrested for credit card fraud in the United States of America.
