The Federal High Court in Enugu on Tuesday sentenced a final-year student of the Institute of Management Technology, Enugu, Okoro Joseph, to eight months’ imprisonment over $15,000 fraud.

Joseph was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission before Justice Dugbo Oghoghorie on five counts bordering on impersonation and obtaining by false pretenses.



He pleaded guilty to the charges.

According to the EFCC, Joseph impersonated Donald Woods and Kennedy Lordan and used pictures of white men to create fraudulent profiles on Hangout and Instagram, which he used to defraud an American woman, Lisa Spitler, of the said sum.

Following his plea, the prosecution counsel, Henry Anasoh, urged the court to convict and sentence him accordingly.

Justice Oghoghorie sentenced Joseph to eight months’ imprisonment and ordered him to restitute the sum of $15,000 to his victim, through the EFCC.
