Remember 28-year old Orowo Jesse Omokoh, who left Nigeria
for South Africa to meet his 67-year old Australian lover, who is a mother and
Grandma and allegedly killed her after stealing her money, before fleeing back
to Nigeria? If you missed the story, read it here. Well he was arraigned in
court today, June 4, 2014 and here is how SaharaReporters puts it, plus fresh pictures of him
after the cut.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on
Wednesday, June 4, 2014 arraigned a suspected romance scammer: Omokoh Orowo
Jesse before Justice R.B Akintola  of the
Oyo State High Court, Ibadan, on a 9-count charge bordering on conspiracy and
obtaining money by false pretence.

Specifically, Jesse allegedly fleeced an Australian lady,
Jette Jacobs of the sum of $90,000 (Ninety Thousand United States Dollars) in a
romance scam that went awry. He reportedly met Jesse in an online dating site
and contrived a relationship with her. Reports showed that Jette travelled to
Johannesburg, South Africa in November 2012. Jesse left Nigeria to meet her on
February 4, 2013. Five days later, Jette was found dead in her apartment.
Jesse returned to Nigeria two days after the discovery of
the body of his supposed lover in her South- African apartment.
 All the nine charges
were read to Jesse and he pleaded not guilty.
Count one of the charge reads: “Omokoh Orowo Jesse, Ifeanyi
Oro (still at large), Emojewe (still at large) and David (still at large)
sometime in 2012 at Ibadan within the Ibadan Judicial Division with intent to
defraud conspired to obtain the sum of $70,000 (Seventy Thousand Dollars) from
one Jette Jacobs, a 67-year-old Australian woman under the false pretence that
the money represents payment for marriage engagement processes between you and
her in Nigeria and which pretence you knew was false”.
In view of Jesse’s plea, EFCC Counsel, Zainab Ettu prayed
the court for a trial date and for the remand of the accused person in prison
custody. However, counsel to the accused person, Tunji Ogunde informed the
court that he had filed an application for bail and sued for bail on liberal
terms for his client.

 Justice Akintola
after listening to both counsel, adjourned the case till July 10, 2014 for
hearing of bail application and ordered that the defendant be remanded in Agodi.
