EFCC, Ibadan Zonal Office, on February 20, 2019, secured the conviction of Osikoya Gbolahan and Rabiu Daniel for offences bordering on impersonation and fraudulently sharing pornographic and indecent pictures.

They were arraigned before Justice Watilat Ibrahim of a Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta, Ogun State on December 10, 2018 and both faced a separate one-count charge.

The charge against Osikoya reads: “That you, Osikoya Gbolahon (aka Mary; aka Lisa Burkholder) sometimes in 2018, at Awa-Ijebu within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court knowingly sent pornographic and indecent pictures with your e-mail through a computer system and network to one Michael Lukianoff and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 24 (1) (a) and punishable under Section 24 (1) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention Etc) Act, 2015.”

The charge against Rabiu reads: “That you, Rabiu Daniel (aka Agent Howard Hall) on 23rd June, 2018 at Awa-Ijebu within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court fraudulently impersonated Agent Howard Hall, working for the Government/Facebook Compensation bonus and poverty Eradication in order to gain undue advantage for yourself, thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 22 (3) (a) and punishable under Section 22 (4) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention Etc) Act, 2015.”

They however, pleaded “guilty” to the charge, after opting for a plea bargain. Justice Ibrahim, thereafter, convicted them and sentenced them to four months in prison, starting from the date of their arrest.

Osikoya was also ordered to forfeit his Honda Accord car, two phones and laptop computer to the Federal Government. In addition to forfeiting his two iPhones and laptop computer, Rabiu was ordered to refund $500 to his victim.
