Photo: Nigerian Man Jailed For Using Instagram Business Page To Scam People

PublishedBy: in Nigeria NewsJanuary 25, 2019 - Last modified on March 5th, 2021 at 2:16 pm


A Nigerian man identified as, Afolabi Ojo (a.k.a. Kemisola) has been jailed for setting up and running a fraudulent business page on Instagram.

Mr. Afolabi Ojo was falsely representing himself on a Instagram page “Beat Classic Store” as a shoe and bag seller.

He had initially pleaded “not guilty” but later changed his plea to “guilty” on the amended one-count charge.

Justice Maureen Onyetenu of the Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, Osun State, thereafter convicted him and sentenced him to six months in prison from the date of conviction having opted for a plea bargain.

Afolabi Ojo had also undertaken to restitute the total sum of N45,000 falsely obtained from his victim.

The journey to the prison began for Afolabi, following a petition sometimes in June 2017, alleging that he engaged in internet fraud.

He created a “Best Classic Store” on Instagram with the name Kemisola on which he advertised shoes and bags for online sales through which he collects money for services not rendered.
