Justice Patricia Ajoku of the Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Monday, March 15, convicted and sentenced one Ajibola Hammed, to three-months in prison.

The defendant, in a classic love scam, represented himself as Jessica Mercy, a white woman, to one Juan Angle, an American man with whom he claimed to be deeply in love, the agency said.

He pleaded guilty to the charge, having entered a plea agreement with the EFCC, culminating in the amendment of his charge.
