 On Monday, 23 January, 2017  The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC arraigned Akintunde Vincent Abiodun before Justice Oluwatoyin Ipaye of Lagos State High court Ikeja on amended charge bordering on forgery and obtaining money by false pretence.

The 37-year-old HND holder from Federal Polytechnic Auchi, Edo State, is said to have defrauded the victim, D. Bonnici of $267,000 New Zealand Dollars by claiming to be Christopher Williams from United Kingdom.



According to the complainant, she met Akintunde in a dating site on the internet and allegedly fell in love with him. She said the accused started collecting money from her after he claimed he was in possession of gemstone worth $18,050,000 (Eighteen Million and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars), which he purportedly inherited from his father.
She further said, Akintunde deceived her into believing that he was coming to New Zealand to settle down with her.
She alleged that the money she sent to the suspect were received in Malaysia and Nigeria by persons bearing Norisha, Jalan Klan, and Mohammed Haizam Bin Fauzin. All of them claimed to be friends of Akintunde.

When the 14 charges were read to the defendant, he pleaded not guilty.
In view of the plea, the prosecuting counsel, Sesan Ola prayed the court to remand the defendant in prison custody and also for a trial date to be given.
Counsel to the defendant, O.P. Daramola however prayed the court to grant the defendant bail.
But the prosecution opposed the bail application on the grounds that the defendant had attempted to travel to the United States while on administrative bail and was similarly denied a Canadian visa.

Justice Ipaye consequently dismissed the bail application while ordering the defendant be remanded in Kirikiri prison custody.
The matter was adjourned to 7 and 8 March, 2017 for trial.

See how quick EFCC caught the crimal and even took him to court. But when it comes to dealing with corrupt politicians, they will be so blind, Politicians who embezzle Nigerian Tresury walk freely on the street. I'm not saying that justice should not be carried out on Akintunde Vincent Abiodun, but they should do likewise to every other Nigerian citizen whether rich or not. EFCC is a not a good thing if i'm to say.
Akintunde Vincent Abiodun who committed this crime is a HND holder, this will show the high rate of unemployment in Nigeria.
