The Ilorin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has secured the conviction of three persons charged before Justice Sikiru Oyinloye of a Kwara State High Court for offences bordering on internet fraud.

The convicts, Apata Oluwakayode, Yusuf Rasheed and Muhammed Ademola pleaded “guilty” to the one-count charge preferred against them by the EFCC.

They had approached the EFCC for a plea bargain agreement, after realizing the weight of evidence gathered against them.

Based on their guilty plea, Justice Oyinloye convicted them accordingly and sentenced them to six months in prison commencing from July 9, 2019.
