A High Court sitting in Kaduna, presided over by Justice Hannatu Balogun has convicted and sentenced one Innocent Arzuka to four months jail term.
Arzuka was arraigned before the court on a four count charge that bordered on cheating by impersonation by the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The convict was arrested by the EFCC operatives in a sting operation following intelligence on his alleged involvement in cybercrime.
Investigation revealed that he fraudulently hacked into the Facebook accounts of unsuspecting persons, and used the same accounts that he edits to suit his evil act of defrauding would-be victims of his fraud schemes.
One of the charges brought against him reads: “that you Innocent Arzuka (M) between January to August, 2021 at Kaduna within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, attempted to commit an offence and in such attempt did a certain act towards the Commission of the said offence, to wit: falsely presented yourself as Flizzy Xi (a woman) in order to cheat Innocent victims and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 308 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law of Law of 2017 and punishable under Section 309 of the same Law”.
He pleaded guilty to the charges.
Based on his plea, the prosecution counsel, M. E Eimonye urged the Court to convict the defendant accordingly.
