The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, on March 23, 2022 secured the conviction of one Abiodun Adeola Sadiq before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja Lagos for allegedly defrauding a businessman of 40,000 euros.
Sadiq, 50, was accused of defrauding one Babatunde Emmanuel, the businessman, of the said 40,000 euros under the guise that the funds would be used for the processing of Malta Government Citizenship Investment Programme as well as procurement of Malta international passport.
He had presented himself to the victim as an agent of the Maltese government.
Upon receipt of the money, however, the defendant merely furnished his victim with a fake Maltese international passport, which upon use, resulted in the deportation of the victim when he used it to travel to Europe, with his 10-year visa revoked.
