According to The Irish Sun, the trio were arrested last Monday by the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau in Dublin, Navan and Drogheda.

They were quizzed before being brought to Dublin District Court on Saturday morning where they charged with a series of suspected fraud offences believed to have been committed between October 2019 and April of this year.

Sadu has been charged with the theft of €35,000 and two counts of money laundering. One of the money laundering charges relates to the alleged conversion of stolen property into a €25,000 Rolex watch.

The other two defendants, Owalabi and Ajayi, have each been charged with three counts of money laundering. Their probe was launched in the summer after a complaint was made to cops by a Dublin woman.

The woman alleges she spent cash on an investment project in the Middle East that never existed after receiving correspondence on the dating website Plenty of Fish last year from a man claiming to be a US oil rig worker.

The three Nigerian nationals, who had lived in Ireland for a number of years, were remanded in custody to appear in court at a later date.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a 51-year-old Nigerian man identified as Ronayerin Ogolor, was sentenced to three years in prison for internet fraud in the United States.
