The Kaduna State High Court has imprisoned five people, including one woman, who claimed to be white American citizens of internet fraud.
The court also convicted four others, all males, who similarly claimed they were Americans bearing American names in order to commit internet fraud, according to a statement by the Kaduna Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, who arraigned them before the court.
The lady, identified as Anita Yusuf Comfort, was found guilty of fraud by the court presided over by Justice N.U Sadiq.
The young lady was sentenced alongside four others; Miracle Osag (a.k.a Cynthiaray), Joshua Omotayo ( a.k.a Christopher Wittland), Victory James ( a.k.a Michael Lan Rosales) and Yunus Abdulwasiu who also claimed to go by the name Gloria Mathew.
They were first arrested by the EFCC at different locations in Kaduna, based on intelligence indicating that they defrauded unsuspecting victims of their hard-earned money.
They were later arraigned by the Commission for offences bordering on internet fraud and obstruction.
