By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan

An Oyo state High Court sitting in Ibadan on Tuesday, sentenced a 26 years old man, Owolabi Damilola Aina  to four months imprisonment
Damilola was arraigned before the court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibadan Zonal Office, before Justice Ladiran Akintola.
 The 26-year-old who claimed to be a fashion enthusiast, was arrested on September 29, 2020, when the Commission got wind of his fraudulent activities and consequently charged him to court on one-count charge bordering on impersonation.
EFCC in the charge against Damilola stated  “Oluwatobi Damilola Aina, sometimes between the month of January and October 2020 at Ibadan within the Ibadan Judicial Division of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud, falsely represented yourself as a female known as Namita Cooling”.
Damilola pleaded guilty to the charge and upon his plea, he was convicted and sentenced to four months in prison.
The court also ordered him to restitute items recovered from him to the Federal Government of Nigeria through the EFCC.
