EFCC Re-arraigns “Adeherself” for Alleged Fraud In Lagos
Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, re-arraigned a self-acclaimed social media influencer, Adedamola Rukayat (a.k.a.Adeherself),…before Justice Mojisola Dada of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos on a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy to obtain money by false pretence.
The defendant was arrested in June 2020, following intelligence report received by the Commission on the activities of some suspected internet fraudsters in the Lekki axis of Lagos State.
However, the trial could not be concluded before the retirement of the trial judge, thereby prompting the re-assignment of the case to Justice Dada.
One of the counts against reads: “Adewale Adedamola Rukayat, Lasisi Wasiu Adeleke (still at large) and Sodiq Adeleke (still at large), between the 17th day of April 2020 and 24th day of May 2020 at Lagos,…
…within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud, conspired to obtain the sum of $6,000 (Six Thousand Dollars) from Joseph Rumoro.”

When the news doesn’t favor them, they ask the media to stay back! But when there is an opportunity for attention they call the media asap!
