U.S Court Sentences Nigerian Man to 3.5 Years in Jail




A U.S. federal judge has sentenced a Nigerian,  Kayode Adeniyi to three and half years’ imprisonment. Mr Adeniyi, alias Mickey Marley, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and fraud in connection with computers before Judge Kea W. Riggs on December 12, 2021.
