An Abuja based scammer Omoaregba Ohis has been convicted on one count charge bordering on fraudulent impersonation.

Ohis was jailed today by Justice A. Akanbi-Yusuf of the Federal Capital Territory High Court, Lugbe, Abuja.

But with his plea bargain with the EFCC, he will be spared jail by paying a fine of N500,000.

The defendant was arrested sometime in August 2021 in the Kubwa axis of Abuja, after the Commission received credible intelligence on the fraudulent activities of suspected internet fraudsters.

Investigation revealed that the convict used false identity to induce helpless victims to part with their hard-earned money.
