Court Jails Undergraduate 3 Years For $450 Scam

Akinluyi Akintunde, is a 24 years old Agronomy undergraduate of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso who was convicted and sentenced by Justice Akintunde Abass on Tuesday, June 25th 2013 to a 3 years imprisonment without an option of fine for allegedly obtained the sum of $450.00 from one Robert Jackson (an American) via Western Union Money Transfer under a false pretence that he was a lady.

Akintunde was arraigned before the Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State on March 13, 2013 on a two count charge bordering on obtaining money under false pretence.

In his judgment, Justice Abass ordered that the sum of $450 recovered from the convict be returned to the victim, Robert Jackson through the United States Consulate as restitution.

Also, he also ordered that the laptop recovered from the convict in the course of his arrest be forfeited to the Federal Government.

I hope everyone reading this learns a lesson or two from this.
