A Nigerian student of the University of Cairo, Egypt has been sentenced to 30 months imprisonment after being found guilty of fraud.

26-year-old Rilwan Adedigba defrauded an American woman, Zen Cariboso, of $1,100 (N176000) through an online love scam.

Adedigba was convicted on Thursday, November 13 by a High Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos after pleading guilty to the crimes.

He was charged with five counts of stealing and possession of fraudulent documents and was imprisoned to a term of six months for each count.

The convict will be expected to forfeit the car he bought with proceeds from the fraud and also refund the stolen money to Ms Cariboso.

Adedigba had lied to the victim that his name was Murphy Paul and that he was a Caucasian and an American citizen who was simply resident in Nigeria.
