A 51-year-old female banker, Yetunde Iyabo Adewunmi, was on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, sentenced to one year imprisonment for conspiracy, aiding and abating fraud.
Adewunmi was convicted of the one-count amended charge instituted against her by the EFCC, Ibadan zonal office, before Justice Peter Lifu of the Federal High Court 2, sitting in Osogbo, Osun state.
Investigation conducted by officials of the Commission had revealed that the convict used her position as a staffer of a new generation bank in Ile Ife, Osun State to forge two identity cards for one Abayomi Samuel Onalaja, an internet fraudster.
This was to enable him cash two Western Union transactions received from his foreign victims.
She was said to have benefited N236,736 (Two Hundred and Thirty Six, Seven Hundred and Thirty Six Naira) from the illegal dealings.
