Court Sentences Man To One Year Imprisonment Over Alleged Fraud Of $240,000
A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt on Thursday sentenced one Moses Igweneme to one-year imprisonment for his alleged involvement in $240,000 romance scam, conspiracy and money laundering.
The convict was said to have swindled his victim, one Chantai Meadery, in February 2018 through a dating app with the promise to build a future together in Switzerland.
The defendant initially pleaded not guilty but at the resumption of hearing on Thursday, he changed his plea to guilty, prompting the prosecuting counsel, T.M. Iko, to call one witness to review the fact of the case and tendered exhibits.
