Anti-graft EFCC said in a statement that Oluwatimilehin Oladimeji was jailed for cheating a woman he met on the Internet by getting her to send him a gift card from eBay worth $30.

Mr. Oladimeji, using Snyder Paul as his alias, passed himself off as a military officer to Linda Rhind Medeiros, who subsequently fell in love with him, EFCC cited court filings as saying.

The Offa resident was arrested in September 2020 by advance fee fraud officials of the anti-graft office’s field offices in Ilorin.
