A convicted Nigerian Yahoo Boy whose name is given as Chibuike Marshal Omemgboji has been sentenced to 6 months of community service in Abuja after he committed a $4,328 fraud, according to the report from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The convicted Fraudster, as part of his community services, will also be sweeping a church in Abuja.
According to the report from EFCC, Chibuike had created social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram, with a fake name (Surajo Ascencio) and collected about $4,328 from one Sarah Vakunta under the pretense that he was in love with her.
The EFCC was able to secure the conviction of Chibuike on the 15th of June 2022 at the Federal Capital Territory High Court In Kubwa, Abuja.
The EFCC has been warning the youth to steer clear of fraud as it is not the right way to make a living.
