Cybercrime: MAPOLY Student Jailed, Two Others Arraigned in Ibadan


A Higher National Diploma (HND) Mechanical Engineering student of Mashood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) in Ogun State, Olalekan Oladapo Ogunremi, was on Wednesday found guilty of criminal impersonation.

He was then sentenced to six months in prison. The 21-year-old actually found favour before Justice Patricia Ajoku of the Federal High Court, Ibadan Division, who commuted the one year punishment proposed for his offence to six months.

The judge succumb to his lawyer’s passionate plea who informed the court that his client had missed two examination sessions owing to the criminal charge filed against him by the Ibadan zonal office of EFCC.

The cases were also adjourned to December 10, 2019 for trial.
