How Yahoo Boy Swindled UK Lover Of £150,000 by Islie: 10:44pm On Nov 30, 2017
By John Chikezie


Justice Hakeem Oshodi of an Ikeja High Court, Lagos yesterday heard how an unemployed young man, Sowunmi Gabriel Oladipo allegedly defrauded a female British National, one Stephanie Metacalfe of £150′ 000.

Oladipo, who portrayed himself as both Brian Kinsella and Gabriel Solomon, met Stephanie sometime in June 2014 on an online dating site as Brian (resident in the Brompton United Kingdom) where they chatted and later turned lovers.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had arraigned Oladipo on a four-count charge of conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretence but he denied the allegations.

The commission alleged that Oladipo and one Adebayo (still at large) between the months of June and September 2014 with intent to defraud obtained the sums of USD $228, 661, £25, 403 and £8, 969 from Stephanie through Western Union Money Transfer Scheme and money gram on the false pretense that he was a supervisor in Shell oil company in Nigeria.

The EFCC also alleged that Oladipo obtained money from the victim on the pretence that he was working in the oil company in Nigeria and needed a loan to pay his workers.

However, according to a female operative attached to the Advanced fee fraud Section of the EFCC, Funmilayo Adedulu, who narrated the incidence to the court, said that the victim(Stephanie) lost £150’000 during the course of their relationship as lovers.

While being led in evidence by the prosecuting officer, Ayokunle Fayanju, Adedulu said that a petition with several attachments dated December 1, 2016 was received by the commission and assigned to her team.

Adedulu said that the petition was written and signed by one Daniel of the National Crimes Agency Victoria Island, Lagos; attached to the British Deputy High Commission on behalf of the UK (United Kingdom) citizen Stephanie Metacalfe.

She said, “in the petition, the citizen claimed she was into an online romance relationship with Brian. The petition stated that the attachments were the statements the UK citizen made to the UK police, including other document showing the incidence which occurred during the relationship.

“The attachment included the DHL documents which she used in sending items like wrist watch, sun glasses to Brian in Nigeria.

“Documents of the Debit transfer from her account to the Diamond bank account of Oladipo in Nigeria, the email exchanges, western Union and money gram documents which she used in sending the monies to Nigeria were also attached.

“In the statement of account of Oladipo Gabriel, it was discovered that the victim made transfers to the account between June, July and September, 2014 in five(5) installments in the tune of $225, 000.
“Further study revealed that most of the depositors of the account had foreign names,” she said.

Adedulu further told the court that the defendant was arrested at Fidelity Bank during the course of investigation and handed over to the operatives of the commission.

“The defendant was arrested by the officials of Fidelity Bank and he further volunteered a statement in respect to the petition”, Adedulu added.

Meanwhile, the tendering of the documents by Fayanju was rejected by the court on the grounds that the documents were not certified.

Justice Oshodi said that the court observed that most of the documents which the prosecution sorts to tender are public documents that are not certified true copies.

The judge consequently adjourned the matter till march 1, 2018 for the continuation of trial.

1 of 5 house holds in Nigeria house a scammer, lets say 1 of 20 in the world depending on which country and what kind of scam the person is into, so calling out tribe only make you look and sound dull. I know different people from all kinds of tribes in Nigeria that are into scam. Checking names is very unnecessary. You really need to go out more. Plus this is the only option the government has given us. Yes, I said US not caring about the names you are going to call me next. People de graduate everyday, job no de for dem. People de enter slavery for Libya, If you know how many families wey scam don change their story forever, U go go buy lappy like this. U no go de segregate tribes when it comes to scam, rather you go go do something for yourself. Mind you, whether you be Hausa, Biafran, Arewa, Jamaican, or whatever black nation you think is leading, you are just another black man. Plus me de tell you Today, I know Lawyers, Police and people in all sorts of authorities wey de scam, SARS bro. If EFCC or Sars enter some boys house, dem de beg their cook to cook for them first before dem negotiate and the only thing wey go make any of those boys step out, na to escort them. Then your leaders, I mean the politicians, your pastors. Glo de scam you, Wizkid de scam you, Olosho de scam you, even your own bae de scam you. Brother go learn one scam today and change your story forever.

NB. Scam is not good, its one of the 10 commandments but how many of the commandments you de keep?
