Court orders student to clean EFCC premises for two weeks for cheating (What premises will corrupt politicians clean?)

An FCT High Court in Gwagwalada, FCT, on Tuesday ordered a 21-year-old student, Babatunde Samuel, to clean the premises of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for two weeks for internet fraud.

Samuel pleaded guilty to cheating filed by the EFCC and begged the court for leniency.

Are you a Man 40 yrs and above? Do not miss the Vital Information, it goes off in 2 days! 

Delivering judgment, Justice Aliyu Shafa, ordered Samuel to clean the EFCC premises from 8 a.m to 10 a.m for two weeks under supervision.

Justice Shafa also ordered Samuel to undergo counselling by EFCC legal department for a period of one month.

Shafa, also ordered the convict to enter a bond to be of good behaviour for a period of two years from 21st June 2022 to 21st June 2024.

Shafa ordered that the items (laptop and cell phone) used to perpetuate the crime be burnt.

Shafa warned him to desist from committing crimes and be of good behaviour.

The convict in his allocutus pleaded with the court to tamper justices with mercy, adding that he would not indulge in such act again.

“I regret involving myself in internet fraud, I will never do it again I promise,” he said.

The Defence Counsel, Mr E. G. Inalegw, in support of the allocutus by the convict told the court that Samuel, who had no previous conviction record in Nigeria was remorseful and repentant.

”Samuel is the first son of his aged mother who is currently hospitalised, he just finished his secondary education and gained admission into the university.

“He moved down to Abuja to seek for greener pastures but ended himself into internet fraud,” Inalegw pleaded.

Inalegw pleaded with the court to tamper justices with mercy, promising that the convict would not repeat such again.

Also, an amicus curiae, Sylvester Ogbelu, pleaded with the court to consider the age of the convict and grant him non custodial sentence especially with the condition of the mother who was aged and currently very sick in the hospital.

Earlier, the EFCC Counsel, Khalid Sanusi told the court that Samuel, alias Andy Wong through his Facebook sometimes in 2021 cheated by pretending to be a Chinese oil and gas engineer based in Italy.

Sanusi said Samuel, in that regard tricked his victim by name Karen with intent to obtain the sum of 10,000 dollars.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 321 of the Penal Code and punishable under Section 322.
