The defendant is wanted for wire fraud, romance scams, and money laundering, among other charges.
The offenses are punishable by up to 20 years in prison under Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1349 and 1956 (h).
Following a request from the Attorney General’s office, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) organized Gbadegesin’s extradition.

Once in the U.S., he will appear before a United States District Court for the District of New Mexico.
Two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering have been filed against him.
