A Nigerian family based in the United States have been sentenced to 252 months imprisonment for wire fruad and money laundering.

The accused, Gbenga Ogundele aka Benson Ogundele, 58, of Laurel, Maryland will spend 234 months in prison, while his wife, Moji Popoola, aka Mojisola Oluwakemi Tin Popoola, aged 42, will spend 18 months in prison.

The jail terms are to be followed by three years of supervised release.

They were jailed for conspiracies to commit wire fraud and money laundering arising from a scheme to defraud vulnerable victims of millions of dollars. Ogundele was also convicted of aggravated identity theft in connection with the scheme.

Judge Paul Grimm of a US District Court ordered that Mojisola Popoola’s supervised release is to be served in home detention. He also ordered Ogundele to forfeit $2.2m, and ordered Mojisola Popoola to forfeit approximately $165,000 and to pay restitution of $34,100. 
 
On March 20, 2017, Judge Grimm sentenced Moji Popoola’s brother, Babatunde Emmanuel Popoola, age 34, of Bowie, Maryland, to 12 years in prison, on the same charges. He ordered Babatunde Popoola to pay restitution of $465,170.
