The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission  arrested  Abiola following a report on the activities of Internet fraudsters in the Lekki area of Lagos

According to available information, Abiola, who presented himself as Burton J. Smith, a citizen of the United States of American and former military officer, defrauded one Courtney Kaye

Abiola was arraigned on an amended one count charge bordering on possession of fraudulent documents which contains false pretence. He pleaded guilty to the charge



Following his plea, the prosecuting counsel, I. A. Mohammed, informed the court about the plea bargain Abiola entered into with the commission and also reviewed the facts of the case.

Delivering her judgement, Justice Taiwo sentenced him to one year imprisonment with an option of N300,000 fine, saying that the N5m recovered from him should  be returned to the victim through the Federal Government.

Justice Taiwo also ordered that a black Mercedes Benz GLK, with number plate AKD 573 GK, recovered from him be forfeited.
