Sinzu Sentenced to 2 Years in Prison for Identity TheftRapper Sinzu, formerly known as Sauce Kid, has been sentenced to two years in federal prison after pleading guilty to aggravated identity theft.

Sinzu, whose real name is Babalola Falemi, had, obtained stolen bank card numbers and identifying information for their owners.

He had encoded the bank numbers into blank cards, changed the account PINs, and withdrawn cash from ATMs with which he had bought goods from stores in the Idaho area.

Sinzu was arrested as he was about to board a flight. The police found a card encoding device and more than $6000 on him.

He was charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, eight counts each of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft, and possession of 15 or more fraudulent bank card, according to Idaho Statesman.

He pleaded guilty to one of the counts of aggravated identity theft and in exchange for his guilty plea, prosecutors dismissed the other counts.

He was also placed on one year of supervised release after his prison term.

    Wow! Would have boarded that flight to Nigeria I guess, and come back with swag and big boy things. Yahoo boys turned musicians in Nigeria.

      @ Chux: You didn’t even get the drift. Direct your advice to some other folks on this blog, especially the Yorubas. If this was an Igbo name, you will see them in droves in the comment section… Igbos this, Biafrans that.. “Let them go to their Biafra”. Yet if Biafra succeeds they too will bail out from Hausa-fulani. Hypocrites!

      @Kpomkwem: You are correct. Absolutely!

      Yorubas do theft, internet scams. Igbos do drug trafficking, and kidnapping. Do you feel better now? I hope Danny kane joins him in jail. These people need to learn the hard way

      Ewu, which one does other tribes do, since each tribe has their specialty? You are in dire need of sense.

    @Diamond,a thief is a thief.stop being a tribalistic bigot using a faceless medium to say some BS around here.You can as well start up your own blog and develop a writing style that suits you.

    As in! Let it be someone from the “wrong” tribe and you will see the vultures circle in with their bigoted comments!

      I am from the south south, and it’s not only Yoruba that accuse Igbos of doing fraud, 419, etc. People in Rivers State, Hausa people, and many other ethnicities feel the same; it’s a commons stereotype. People who accuse you guys on BN, might be from other tribes and not necessarily Yoruba’s. Your comment is petty and unnecessary.

      Most bigotry comments I have read on this blog towards Igbos are from Yorubas. Gosh, yoruba can be tribalistic! Even when they try hard to hide it, you can still see the laced shade and insults all over

    Something went wrong somewhere, to think this guy was actually academically clever and could have well been a Banker, Economist, Doctor and the likes. So sad
