Babatunde Adu: Tmoneyadu Jailed In The U.K For Laundering Nearly £1m


A Belvedere fraudster who laundered almost a million pounds in a year will spend more than six years behind bars. Babatunde Adu aka TmoneyAdu or Alagapromoter was found to have a number of credit cards and fraudulent documents at his home during a police raid in October last year.

The raid was part of a week-long initiative to tackle card fraud, after intelligence suggested he had been using compromised cards to buy electronic goods with a value of up to £15,000 to sell on.

Police research revealed the 38-year-old owner of Bigfoot Records & Entz,
had a bank account which had been used in 2014 to receive £50,000 from a romance fraud. Further analysis revealed a £900,000 turnover in a bank account the previous year.


A trial at Inner London Crown Court found Adu guilty of disguising criminal property on Tuesday, July 4, having already pleaded guilty to converting criminal property, possession of a fraudulently obtained identification document and fraud by false representation.

Detective Constable Damian Ward, of the Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit (DCPCU), said: “Adu was a career fraudster who had falsely obtained money through a variety of means and I am delighted with this conviction."

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
