Nigerian Student Sentenced to 30 Months in Prison for Cyber-Crime

A Nigerian student schooling at Cairo University, Egypt, Rilwan Adedigba, has been sentenced to 30 months in jail for defrauding an American lady, Zen Cariboso, of $1,100.
The 26-year-old undergraduate was said to have lied to the white lady that he was one Murphy Paul, a white American living in Nigeria, who was in love with her and used the love scam to obtain the stolen sum from the American.
Adedigba pleaded guilty to all the counts and entered a plea bargain with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) who arrested him.
Justice Kudirat Jose of the Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja delivered the judgement and ordered the accused to forfeit to the Federal Government a car he had acquired with the proceeds of the illegal venture and also to make restitution to the victim by refunding the stolen $1,100.
Justice Jose  said the crime violated Sections 390 and 318 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011.
