Justice Shafa, in his ruling, said:

“I have carefully listened to the plea of allocutus made by the convict and the defence counsel.
“The rate of fraud in the society is so alarming. Cybercrime is a dangerous offence in our society, which must be tackled.”

The EFCC Counsel, Chidike Obasi-oko, told the court that Success, sometime in 2022, within the jurisdiction of the court, attempted to commit the offence of cheating.

Obasi-oko said that the convict created an Instagram account to induce people to deliver money or goods to him.

He said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 95 of the Penal Code Act Law of the Federation (Abuja), 1990 and was punishable under Section 322 of the same Act.
