Nemesis has finally caught up with a 37-year-old Nigerian, Kelvin Ogodogu, who impersonated Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel and attempted duping his unsuspecting fans via social media.
Kelvin has been apprehended by the Ghana police, charged to court and sentenced to 10 months imprisonment with hard labour

Luck ran out of the impersonator on Saturday, November 15 as he was arrested by the police through the help of some of his neigbours in Kasoa in the Central region, for trying to defraud a US-based Nigerian lady.

The Nigerian, posing as Majid Michel on Facebook, solicited funds from unsuspecting persons, including the US-based Nigerian lady, Ikay, to bury his mum.

Kelvin Ogodogu was arraigned before the Ledzokuku Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) Magistrates' Court in Teshie on Thursday, November 20 where he initially pleaded not guilty to the charges of impersonation and attempted fraud.

During the second hearing on Tuesday, November 25, presided over by Judge Charles Yaw Boateng, State Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Ophelia Denteh led the award winning actor to give his evidence.

Then on his third appearance on Thursday, November 27, Kelvin pleaded guilty with explanation.
He explained that he has always been a fan of the award winning actor and people even called him Majid Michel. According to Kelvin, the lady in question sent him a message, “Hi Majid” on Facebook and he subsequently initiated a conversation with her.

The prosecution demanded to know why he went ahead to chat with the lady on Facebook when he knew he wasn't Majid Michel and to the point of giving the lady his number to continue the conversation on Whatsapp.

However during its final hearing on Friday, November 28, the court sentenced the accused to ten months imprisonment with hard labour at the Nsawam Maximum Security Prison.© 2014Nollywoodgists.com
