Nigerian Man jailed for Instagram business page scam
A Nigerian man identified as, Afolabi Ojo (a.k.a. Kemisola) has been jailed for setting up and running a fraudulent business page on Instagram.
Mr. Afolabi Ojo was falsely representing himself on a Instagram page “Beat Classic Store” as a shoe and bag seller.
He had initially pleaded “not guilty” but later changed his plea to “guilty” on the amended one-count charge.
Justice Maureen Onyetenu of the Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, Osun State, thereafter convicted him and sentenced him to six months in prison from the date of conviction having opted for a plea bargain.
