A man named Onifade Gideon Idowu has been remanded in prison pending when a case of alleged fraud filed against him is decided. This decision was taken by Justice Patricia Ajoku of the Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, 

The accused was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan zonal office, on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, on a five-count charge bordering on forgery, fake representation, obtaining money under false pretence and internet-related offences.

He was said to have explored the internet, through series of fake representations, to illegally receive over N30 million (Thirty Million Naira) and other sums in foreign currencies from victims of his fraudulent activities across the world.
