In a statement posted on Wednesday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC via its official social media handle on X,  the commission said the two were jailed after separately pleading guilty to a one-count of internet fraud upon their arraignment by the Kano Zonal Command of the EFCC.

The EFCC’s counsel, Abubakar Elbadawi and Fatima Mustapha prayed to the court to convict and sentence them accordingly.

However, the counsel for the defendants, M.J Ella and M.E Ogah pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy, stressing that the defendants were first-time offenders and have regretted their actions.
