A Nigerian big boy, Kolawole Erinle, has been indicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for allegedly defrauding Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in the United States of $1.4 million.

An FBI’s agent, Ayotunde Solademi, told an Ikeja Special Offences Court on Tuesday, February 7, how Erinle allegedly committed the crime.

Solademi, a Foreign Service national investigator for the FBI, Office of the Legal Attaché in the US Consulate in Nigeria, said the university became a victim of spoofing, a form of cybercrime attack that targets businesses using forged sender addresses.

The defendant however pleaded not guilty to the charge.
