On Friday, the Federal High Court in Ilorin sentenced five people to varied prison sentences for offenses linked to cyber fraud.
Ololade Olabisi and Segun Samson are from Lagos, Issa Shamsudeen and Babatunde Saheed are from Kwara, and Abdulmatin Akibu is from Oyo State.
The convictions were obtained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) Ilorin Zonal Command.
In his decision, Justice Muhammed Sani stated that the prosecutor had built a case against the defendants and found them guilty.
The judge sentenced the defendants to various jail terms, ranging from six months to one year, with options of fine.
The judge also ordered that all items used as instruments to commit the crime, which included phones and laptops, as well as money raised as restitution, be forfeited to the federal government.
The defendants pleaded guilty to the separate charges preferred against them by the anti-graft agency.
Upon their pleas, Innocent Mbachie, Aliyu Adebayo and Andrew Akoja reviewed the facts of the case and tendered all the exhibits, which was admitted as evidence against the defendants.
The prosecuting counsel urged the court to consider the facts and circumstances of the case, the guilty pleas by the defendants, their extra judicial statements and convict them as charged.
