Here is what EFCC lawyer, A.M Ocholi said about the defendant today:
“The defendant goes by the alias Jeff Sessions and using the moniker, he created an e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
“He had in his possession an e-mail correspondence containing false pretence titled: “Grant Money”, which he sent from that e-mail address to email@example.com, the e-mail address of an unsuspecting victim.
“Oluwaseyi had in his possession another e-mail correspondence titled: ‘Grant’ which he sent from his Jeff Sessions e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org he knew contained false pretence.
“He also had sent an e-mail: titled “no subject” which he sent to email@example.com, knowing same to be false.”
His bail application will be heard on the 10th of September but before then, Ikoyi Prison will be his temporary home.
