EFCC Arraigns Suspected Internet Fraudster for Impersonation In Lagos

The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday, June 10, 2023, arraigned a suspected internet fraudster, Victor Fasuba, on a one-count charge bordering on fraudulent impersonation before Justice Kehinde Ogundare of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos.

The lone-count charge reads: “That you, FASUBA VICTOR OLUWATOSIN, sometime in
November 2023, in Lagos, within the jurisdiction of this Honorable Court, fraudulently impersonated one ‘Arrow Grant” by holding yourself out as such on Facebook App, with intent to gain advantage for yourself and thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 22(2)(b) of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention etc) Act, 2015.”

He pleaded “guilty” to the offence when it was read to him.

In view of his guilty plea, prosecution counsel, Z.B. Atiku, sought to review the facts before the court.

Justice Ogundare, however, adjourned the matter to June 25, 2024, for review of facts.

The defendant was ordered to continue on the administrative bail earlier granted by the EFCC.
