Today, social media influencer and comedienne Adedamola Adewale – better known as Adeherself – was re-arraigned by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission for alleged N7.9 million internet fraud.

Charged with conspiring to acquire money through false pretenses and retaining proceeds from criminal actitivites, Adeherself is accused of attempting to gain $6,000 from Mr. Joseph Rumoro under the guise that it was for his passport, visa and tax payment.

Additionally, she is accused of keeping N7.9 million in cybercrime earnings in her bank account.

Mr. Samuel Daji, the EFCC’s counsel, asked the court to remand the defendant until the commencement of trial due to her pleading not guilty to the allegations.

He said;

“My lord, this case was heard before Justice Sherifat Solebo before she retired, and when it was transferred to this honorable court, I informed my learned friend that the case would be coming up on Jan. 25.

He said he thought it was the day before.
This is a matter that is starting afresh before your lordship, and we do not know if the sureties, who stood for her earlier, are dead or not.

It is proper for the defense to apply afresh for bail before your lordship.”

On the other hand, Molade Kassim – defense counsel of Adeherself – argued against this request and asked that her previous bail be reinstated until a new application could be submitted.
