‘Yahoo Boys’ Who Duped British, Turkish Airways Jailed 3 Years

….. …Forfeit N206m, cars, houses to FG

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – An Ikeja Special Offences Court has sentenced two men, Tobiloba Ibrahim Bakare and Alimi Seun Sikiru, to three years imprisonment each, for hacking the emails of British Airways, Turkish Airways and KLM, and stealing no fewer than $750,000 and N120million

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo, who convicted the duo, also forfeited their N204, 041,216.82 cash to the federal government, among other luxury cars and houses in highbrow parts of Lagos

The other properties forfeited are a Mercedes Benz E500, a Toyota Hilux 2020 model; a five-bedroom duplex at Ibrahim Beto Street, Osapa London, Lekki, Lagos; a four-bedroom semi-detached duplex at Ologolo Jakande, Lekki, and a four-bedroom semi-detached duplex in Southern View Estate, Mayor Court, Chevron Alternative Road, Lekki, Lagos

Justice Taiwo sentenced Bakare and Sikiru on Monday, following their guilty plea to six counts of conspiracy and retaining of the stolen items, and the plea bargain agreement they entered with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)

EFCC counsel, Idris Mohammed, had told the judge that the offences contravened sections 411 and 328(1) and were punishable under Section 328 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015

In reaching a decision on their guilt, the judge also considered the facts of the case as reviewed by the Commission

Idris told the court that the EFCC received credible intelligence of an alleged case of suspicious transaction and Money Laundering reported on September 2, 2020, following which its Advance Fee Fraud Section began Investigation
