According to more reports, Fasanya and Ezike, both of Yoruba and Igbo origins, deposited $1.2 million and withdrew about $487,000 before the fraud was detected.
Stephen Dambruch, a U.S. Attorney for Rhode Island has ordered the Nigerians to pay back the sums of $380,000 and $230,000 respectively to the banks defrauded.
This is to serve as restitution to the cheated institutions.
They are expected to be deported from the U.S as soon as they complete their 13-month jail term.
