Justice Sikiru Oyinloye of the Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin has imposed one-year imprisonment on one of the players of Ibrafix Football Club, Ilorin, Baraye Bamidele Saoban, for offenses bordering on love scam.

Baraye, 25, who hails from Ilorin, was jailed alongside one Adaraloye Ezekiel, a native of Osi, Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State, for a similar offense. The duo were prosecuted on separate charges by the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The defendants pleaded guilty when the charges were read to them. Following their pleas, counsel to the EFCC, Rashidat Alao led witnesses in evidence to review the facts of the cases.

The witnesses narrated how actionable intelligence led to the arrest of Baraye and Adaraloye, telling the court that the duo specialized in “Yahoo-Yahoo business”.

Items recovered from the defendants at the point of arrest including iPhones, incriminating messages printed from their devices and manager’s cheque raised as restitution were tendered and admitted by the court.

Alao urged the court to convict the defendants since there was no contrary evidence to disprove the prosecution’s claim against them.

Justice Oyinloye in his judgment on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 said the court was convinced that the prosecution had proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt based on the plea of guilt entered by the defendants and the uncontroverted evidence tendered against them.
