Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, today secured the conviction and sentencing of one Taiwo Michael Okunowo, an Internet fraudster, before Justice S.O. Solebo of the State High court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos on a one- count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence and possession of fraudulent documents.

The convict was arrested following intelligence report received by the Commission on December 15, 2017 about his fraudulent activities.

The count reads: “That you, Taiwo Michael Okunowo, (aka Holly Herlich, Mark Welsh, Steven Staller), on or about the 16th day of December, 2017, at Lagos within the Ikeja judicial Division, had in your possession documents containing false pretence titled- “Facebook & Government Compensation Winning Certificate, Treasure Grant Winners Certificate and Facebook-brandon M. Micke”- containing false pretence, which you knew to be false.”

The defendant, who had earlier entered a plea bargain with the Commission, pleaded guilty to the charge preferred against him by the Commission.

Delivering his judgment today, Justice Solebo found the defendant guilty of the one-count charge and sentenced him to one year imprisonment.
