EFCC arraigns fake FBI director in Nasarawa

Adamu Yahaya Jiyaba, a fictitious director of the American Federal Bureau of Investigation, was charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission before Justice N.I. Afolabi of the Federal High Court in Lafia, Nasarawa State.

The suspect was charged with one count of potential computer fraud.

On Tuesday, the EFCC posted a statement on its official Facebook page that included this information.

The charge read, “That you, Adamu Yayaha Jiyaba, sometime in 2022 in Abuja within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court attempted to commit an offence to input a data that you are Robert S. Muller, the FBI Director, with the intention that such inauthentic data will be considered or acted upon and you thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 13 of the Cybercrime (Provision, Prevention, etc.) Act, 2015 and punishable under the same Section of the Act.”


He pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Justice Afolabi adjourned the matter till October 26 and 27 2022 for commencement of trial, while Jiyaba was remanded in the Lafia Correctional Centre.
