Tarrant County Hopes Sentence Discourages Criminals...

(Fort Worth, TX) – 372nd District Court Judge Scott Wisch on Wednesday sentenced Gbenga Fadipe to 12 years in prison after he pled guilty to first-degree felony Theft greater than $300,000.

The offense involved $693,625.77 in funds stolen from the City of Fort Worth.

“If criminals are deciding who to target, and they know Tarrant County judges are giving sentences like this, they may avoid this area in the future,” Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney Sharen Wilson said.

Here’s how the theft occurred.

In October 2017, a change of account request was submitted to the city of Fort Worth that appeared to be from Imperial Construction, which was doing business with the city. The fraudulent request, which was granted, was to update Imperial’s wiring instructions so that Fort Worth’s invoice payments due to Imperial would be directed to a new account at Chase Bank.

Fadipe, 50, was the sole authorized user of the new Chase account. Once money was transferred by the city into that account, Fadipe immediately moved those stolen funds into four other accounts he controlled at Prosperity Bank and Capital One Bank between November 2017 and early 2018.

Assistant DA Believes Fadipe Had Help

Within two weeks of liquidating all the funds that totaled $693,625.77, Fadipe flew from the United States to London and then to Nigeria. He eventually returned to the United States and was arrested in the Houston area. He was taken into custody Wednesday night, May 12, to begin serving his sentence.

“We do not believe this defendant acted alone,” said Nathan Martin, the assistant criminal district attorney who prosecuted the case.

Yussuph Hazeez in Harris County faces criminal charges relating to this case.

later,the ones in Nigeria will say it's bad govt that is making them go into internet fraud. They even openly boast about their evil exploits and viciously attack those that call them out for their wrong doings.

This one that is in the U.S, is it also bad govt, corruption and lack of job that made him do it?

What is wrong is wrong and should be condemned completely without making any excuses
Learn to.do what's right and stay away from evil.

Stop tarnishing the already bad image nigeria already has outside even further.

All naija politicians and Yahoo boys belong to the same league and must be casted out if we are ever go to achieve great things and restore the respect we have as a nation.

This is a good news I personally want to be hearing.

Those unrepentant fraudsters soiling our image abroad should continue to be trapped in the stuffy/hellish pit of the law.

12 years in prison?

Where ordinary cry for headache is still looked into?

Then he comes out and is 62?

Omooo he is a thief yes and deserves his punishment but his 12years sentence is a still a better life and future than most free Nigerians will ever live.

All these foolish scammers sef...I mean, I don't get it...you heavily scammed citizens of a country like the US, and you still have the effrontery to travel back there...Isn't that the peak of stupidity. Well maybe nah the heads of the victims dey take them back there.

Invictus Obi, the Ogun political appointee that made the news yesterday, and now this old idiot again...they all got nabbed on their returns to the States years after successful scam operations.

But I like the FBI sha, they don't make noise, plus they can be very patient ehn...even if it is for 10 years, they will be waiting for you. grin
