I don’t know how 6M appeared in my bank accounts ‘Yahoo Boy’ sentenced to one year in prison, unable to account for N6m in his bank account:
Justice O.A. Egwuatu of the Federal High Court, Maitama, Abuja on Friday, September 15, 2023, convicted and sentenced one Ukoh Michael Odeh to one year imprisonment on one count-charge of fraud brought against him by the Makurdi Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The convict got into trouble when the Command received an intelligence report regarding the suspicious activities of some individuals suspected to be internet fraudsters in Makurdi. He was subsequently arrested in a sting operation.
