A Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State, yesterday, sentenced a graduate of Criminology and Security Services, Demola Adeusi, four months.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibadan zonal office, prosecuted Olatunji, who was found guilty of internet-related offence.

Justice Patricia Ajoku pronounced him guilty of the one count amended charge of criminal impersonation.

Adeusi, also known as Piero Luchas, was originally arraigned on a six-count charge to which he pleaded not guilty.

He then entered a plea bargain with EFCC, which reduced the charges to one, to which he pleaded guilty.

The convict, who claimed to have graduated from Adekunle Ajasin University (AAU), Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State in 2014, was arrested on February 8 this year at Elebu Oja, Ibadan.
