Anti-graft: Kaduna Court Jails Two for Impersonation

Justice R.M. Aikawa of the Federal High Court, sitting in Kaduna has convicted and sentenced the duo of Onah Henry Chinonso (a.k.a Sandra Morales) and Puklong Michael Longhom (a.k.a Robertech) to prison for internet fraud.

This was contained in a statement released by the anti-graft agency on Saturday, 28th of June, 2024 via it’s website.

According to the agency, the convicts were prosecuted by the Kaduna Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on separate one-count charges, bordering on criminal impersonation on social media.
