21 Years Jail Sentence For Fraudster Who Posted Nude Pictures On Social Media (updated)

*This story has been updated to include the true version of events*

Paul Femi Adesanya was last Friday sentenced by The Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja for defrauding American-based Mrs Oluwatoyin Akinwole, of the sum of N36.7m.

The lady later committed suicide by jumping off the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.

Adesanya started an adulterous affair with the late Akinwole on a visit to Nigeria, and during some of their thrysts, took several pornographic images and videos of his victim.

After she returned to her base in the US, Adesanya started to demand huge sums of money from his “lover” which she initially obliged. Soon his demands became more expensive and when she failed to continue paying up, he resorted to blackmail and threatened to release the nude images he had taken of her on social media unless she paid him the extortionate amount of N38m.

Unable to come up with such, Adesanya went ahead with his threats and posted the images and videos which quickly went viral across the world.

The prosecuting counsel for the EFCC, Samuel Daji, said Adesanya acted contrary to sections 1(1) and 1(3) of the Advance Fee Fraud Act; as well as sections 278 and 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State

In her judgement on Friday, Justice Dada convicted Adesanya of the three counts filed against him by the EFCC.

The judge said she was satisfied that the prosecution proved the charges beyond reasonable doubts.

“I hereby sentence you to 14 years’ imprisonment on counts one and two, from the date of arraignment. These sentences are to run concurrently.

“On count three, for stealing, the convict is sentenced to seven years in prison,” the judge held.

The real version of the story

We have now obtained the true version of the events in this story. The adultery and suicide were events fabricated and circulated by Adesanya as part of his sick extortion and blackmail game. Please read the true account of the saga from the mouth of Mrs Akinwole who we understand is still well and alive, and back in Texas where she is based:

“I am a businesswoman and I live in Texas, United States of America. Sherrifat lives in the USA and we were close friends when this issue started and she was the person who linked me to an Alfa named Ganiu Awojobi in Nigeria, but I wasn’t talking to the Alfa. Sherifat traveled to London, England in March 2017 to meet Otunba Adesanya, who she was having an affair with and she called to tell me that the Alfa told her that my death was imminent, except I perform some prayers.

‘’While she was saying this, Otunba Adesanya, came in and told me that he knows the Alfa very well and that I should obey him because he is very powerful and well known in Nigeria.

Otunba Adesanya, also told me that he had several businesses in Nigeria including petrol filling stations in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State.

Alfa Awojobi, was demanding N154,000 for the prayers and I told Sherifat and Otunba that I didn’t have such money. Otunba Adesanya offered to pay N100,000 for me, while he asked me to pay the balance.’’

Continuing, she said:’’ I did what they said and Alfa started praying for me. He did that until April, 2018, and he insisted that I must come to Nigeria for the final prayers. I was really scared then and I didn’t want to die the way my younger sister died. I returned to Nigeria and went straight to Alfa at Ijebu-Ode. He asked me to take my bath before entering his house which I did and by midnight, he brought four men and they started praying for me. Alfa then said he had seen more visions about my husband and children and I ended up spending N1.5million at the Alfa’s place before returning to America. Otunba Adesanya, then came in and told me that he wanted to invest my money in oil business using his petrol filling stations. He took me round some filling stations in Ijebu-Ode and he was greeted as the owner. He asked me to invest a huge amount of money and promised that after one month, I will get back my 50 percent of my investment as profit, and I trusted him.

‘’ I borrowed N30 million and the person who loaned me the money paid it into his account. One month after I gave him the money, I called and started asking about the business; Otunba Adesanya, got angry and paid back the money into my account. I was shocked and this made me believe and trust Otunba Adesanya, to be a kind of genuine businessman. Then, I pleaded and asked him to continue with the business and then he asked me to change the money into dollar which I did and I took the money to him. Two months after then, when I tried to get back my money, he told me that the money I gave to him to invest into the business wasn’t enough and he needed money and I went on scouting for more money. I continued to give him money until it reached a total of N75million. He also asked me to pay the sum of N31million through the Alfa’s account.

‘’ But on December 2017, one of his boys called me on the telephone and told me that I had been defrauded, then I arrested him with some police and military men and they couldn’t recover my money. I also got him arrested with policemen in Osun and Ondo states, yet, he went off the hook. Then, I brought in operatives of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, to arrest him, and they recovered 21,000 nude photos and videos of various Nigerian women. He claimed he was very sick and the EFCC granted him bail, but after his release he went on the internet and published photoshop nude photos of myself and him, claiming that he had sexual relationship with me, which was a lie. He was also the person who circulated the story that I had jumped into the Third Mainland Bridge Lagoon, over infidelity. The EFCC tried to caution him but he wouldn’t listen because he wanted to blackmail me into stopping my case. I was given the advice to go to the IGP IRT and report my case and they trailed and arrested the Alfa as well as Otunba Adesanya”.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos office, on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, arraigned Adesanya Olufemi Paul and Awojobi Ganiu before Justice Mojisola Dada on a four-count charge bordering on stealing and obtaining money by false pretence to the tune of N33, 617.000 (Thirty-Three Million, Six Hundred and Seventeen Thousand Naira) only.

He was convicted and sentenced on a three count charge bothering conspiracy, obtaining money by false pretence and stealing and sentenced to 21 years Imprisonment.

Details of FFK’s Journey With Drug Addiction, Inheritance Liquidation And Mental Home Rehabilitation

While schooling in London, Olufemi Adewunmi Fani-Kayode embraced hard drugs through the influence of Nazir Ado Ibrahim and Yeni Adefarasin (Now a Pastor and younger brother of Pastor Paul Adeolu Adefarasin)

After his bitter divorce from his first wife Yemisi Adeniyi a daughter of retired Lagos High Court Judge and niece of the then Minister of Trade and Investment, Mr. Olusegun Aganga (her mother is the elder sister of the Minister), Femi Fani-Kayode finally plunged himself into the world of narcotics.

Between late 1993 and 1994 he practically became a ‘junkie’.

His father, Chief Babaremilekun Adetokunbo Fani-Kayode was then down with prostate cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy in London.
His mother, Deaconess Adia Adunni Fani-Kayode, who was then attending The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), sought the counsel of the Church’s founder, Bishop Okonkwo who advised that Femi be taken to Bishop Nicholas Duncan Williams’ Christian Action Faith Ministry’s Mental Home in Ghana.

When Femi Fani-Kayode was finally bundled to the mental home in Accra, he found a good company in the person of Yemi Adefarasin (son of the late former Chief Judge of Lagos State).

Also, Rev. Bako (of the famous Kafanchan riot) was the principal of the ministry’s Bible College. After intense prayers, supplications and counseling, Femi Fani-Kayode was cured of drug addiction and lunacy.


Regina (ex-wife) stayed with FFK in Nigeria at their Marine road, Apapa residence. Femi’s late mother, Deaconess Adunni Fani-Kayode then instructed her son to be his father’s eye at his Law Chambers (Fani-Kayode, Sowemimo Law Firm) on Strachan Street, Lagos Island.

A Firm jointly owned by his father and Chief Sobo Sowemimo) (SAN). While at the Law Chambers, Femi teamed up with Mr. Seyi Sowemimo, the son of Chief Sobo Sowemimo to run the Chamber. But instead of facing the law practice, Femi was only interested in anything in skirts, partying and just talking as he never contributed in any way to any task of the Firm.

Before long, his performance and nonchalant attitude got to his mother who was then the Executive Chairman of her late husband’s company- KRAMER ITALO LIMITED (a construction and furniture making company) situated on Apapa Road, Ebute-Metta, Lagos. The mother, Adia Fani-Kayode then asked him to take her position and run the company.

Sometime in February 1996, Femi Fani-Kayode took over the management of the company and by middle of 1997 he had run it aground, bankrupt and it was finally liquidated.


While managing KRAMER ITALO, he started taking drugs again alongside some friends.

Before long, he became recluse. His drug addiction became noticeable when he started to sell his household items (AC, Refrigerator, artworks etc.).

His only car, a Peugeot 505 was roughly used while his wife Regina became a punching bag on a daily basis. He once tried to drown her at a nearby lagoon behind his house.
Regina luckily escaped to Ghana through the efforts of some friends and staffers of the Ghanaian Embassy. Some of his neighbors like late Banky Duduyemi (son of Chief Alex Duduyemi) and Chief Mrs. Ayoka Dorcas Kuforiji-Olubi became aware of his problems.

To make matters worse, Femi sold his four bedroom duplex inheritance on Marine Road, Apapa-Lagos to buy drugs and moved into his fathers’ house on the same street. His mother who could have offered help was herself in London while Femi was engaged in all sorts of nefarious activities. His elder brother and the scion of the Fani-Kayode dynasty, Barrister Akinola Fani-Kayode could not also help because he was mentally challenged.

Till today, Barrister Akinola is still an out-patient of Yaba Psychiatrist hospital in Lagos.

When Femi’s case became unbearable, some of his friends through the help of Banky Duduyemi called his mother in London and the old woman came to tend to her son.

He was again moved to Bishop Duncan Williams Mental Home in Ghana in November 1997 where he was once again delivered.

He came back into the country in 2003 through the assistance of late Chief Bola Ige who introduced him to ex-President Obasanjo the man he had serially vilified. And through the help of his friend, Chief Akin Osuntokun he became an assistant to the former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Now FFK wants to “Negotiate” payment of N6b from Daily Trust without a court ruling in his favour . Just like that. 😆 ..

Guy man!

“Broke And Hungry” Nigerians Raise Thousands of $$ For Evicted Big Brother Contestant

I will never understand the psyche of the Nigerian mind that never ceases to confound me on almost a daily basis.

Jusst a few days ago – last week to be precise, millions of Nigerians took to social media to call out and rain abuse and curses on the leadership of President Mohammadu Buhari over a N20 fuel price increase. As a matter of fact, you would be forgiven for thinking the average Nigerian was church rat broke and eating from dumpsters from the pitiable and pathetic posts splattered all over facebook, instagram and twitter on the plight of Nigerians.

Yet, in a mind blowing twist, the same Nigerians thought it wise to open a Gofund Me account to raise funds for an ejected contestant of the ongoing Big Brother Nigeria TV show.

A female contestant on the show, Erica was disqualified and evicted following several warnings regarding bullying and other unlawful behaviour on the show.

BBNaija 2020 contestant Erica

Within 5 hours of launching the $100,000 appeal, the fund had raised an unbelievable $15,000!

And it is still rising!

All from Nigerians who have been claiming penury and poverty!!

Nigeria is well known for its cluelessness, and crass culture of misplacing priorities. In the country, large organisations sponsor school competitions offering the winners paltry and insulting sums as little as N25,000 as cash prices but offer the winners of TV shows such as Big Brother up to N85,000,000. The The United Bank for Africa (UBA) Foundation annually invites applications for the National Essay Competition. The cash price for the winner is N2.5m.


The corporate Nigeria seems to have very little interest in the development of sports and education and this is demonstrated in where their corporate social responsibility is focused. Afrobeat stars such as Dbanj, Phyno and Wizkid earn up to N100,000,000 in brand ambassador fees, while 90% of Nigerian schools are crumbling, dilapidated and old and less than 30% of school children have access to basic laptops or computers.

Life enhancing educational contests such as the National Life Sciences Competition (NLSC) for Secondary Schools in Nigeria struggle to find big companies to sponsor them and competition winners can only expect as little as N50,000 as cash prizes

As for school and grassroots sports in the country, that is almost non existent.

Nigeria Places Ban On Major European Airlines As It Invokes Reciprocity Clause

Nigerian government has released the list of international airlines denied approval to operate in the country ahead of the resumption of international flights.

The ban includes major airlines European such as Air France, KLM, and Lufthansa.

Other operators covered by the ban and denied entrance into the country are Etihad, Rwandair, , TAAG Angola Airlines, Air Namibia, and Royal Air Maroc according to the aviation minister, Hadi Sirika.

Nigeria had in August vowed to implement a reciprocity clause by banning flights and airlines from countries that put similar bans on flights from Nigeria as nations open their airspace amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mr Sirika, while speaking at the bi-weekly Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 briefing, on Thursday, said only approved airlines will be allowed into the country’s airspace.

President Muhammad Buhari had in March ordered the suspension of international flights to curb the influx of imported cases of the COVID-19 virus in the country.

While local flights were also suspended, they resumed about five weeks ago as the country joined the rest of the world to battle the pandemic.

Nigeria recorded its first case of COVID-19 in an Italian who arrived in the country late February.

Since then, over 54,000 infections have been recorded leading to over 1,000 deaths.

Mr Sirika also said some airlines have been given approvals to operate within the COVID-19 protocols.

Could Femi Fani-Kayode One Day Become Nigeria’s President?

This might be a huge possibility if the prophesy of Alex Bamgbola comes to pass.

The chairman of the Lagos state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria prophesied he will someday rule this nation at the 31st anniversary of Lagos-based clergyman, Isaac Idahosa, as a pastor.

Former Minister of Aviation and bad brat of Nigerian politics Femi Fani-Kayode, did not waste time in “receiving” the prophecy as he immediately dropped to his knees after the clergyman uttered the prophesy.

While speaking from the pulpit to FFK, Bamgbola said “If you do not compromise yourself, God said I should tell you, you will one day rule this nation.”

FFK was recently involved in a heated controversy where he rained abusive insults and expletives ata journalist who questioned who was bankrolling his recent nation wide junket?

FFK a lawyer by profession does not have any current known occupation.

However he has been described as a charge and bail solicitor. A lawyer who only appears at bail hearings but never really appears in any defence capacity.

Congratulations to Burna Boy’s parents Sam and Bose Ogulu as they celebrate 30 years of marriage.

We wish you both a very Happy Wedding Anniversary
