Two brothers, Clement Osariemen and Vincent Osariemen, were among sixteen internet fraudsters convicted and sentenced to prison by Justices Efe Ikponmwonba and M. Itsueli of Edo State High Court sitting in Benin City.


The other convicts are Clinton Oyaden, Davidson Aghatise Enabulele, Adeniyi Temitope, Oshiobugie Pascal Enakhena, Akparoboke Oghenero, Sunday Christian, Godstime Okolie, Osagie Clinton, Adelike Precious , Nwankwo Ebere, Olawale David Oluwagbemiga, Fajemilusi Tosin, Godspower Uwaifo Osamudiamen and Uvbierimi Raphael.


They were arraigned by the Benin Zonal Command of the Commission on separate one count charges bordering on possession of fraudulent documents and intent to defraud.

Upon arraignment, the defendants pleaded guilty to their respective counts prompting prosecution counsel, F.A. Jirbo, Al-Amun Ibrahim Abdul and Saliu Ahmed to pray the court to convict and sentence the defendants accordingly. However, counsel to the defendants pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy as the defendants were first time offenders who have become remorseful for their actions.

 Osamudiamen, Enabulele, Enekhena, Okolie, Clinton and Oyadan Clinton bagged three years imprisonment or a fine of Two Hundred Thousand Naira each.
