The Sokoto Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday secured the conviction of the duo of Akhipkemelo Lukman and Esene Daniel before Justice Aminu Garba Sifawa of the Sokoto State High Court on a two-count charge bordering on conspiracy and cheating.
The convicts fraudulently hacked the First Bank account of one Isah Liba, from where they transferred the total sum of N986,000 which they shared among themselves.
The defendants pleaded ‘guilty’ to the charges
Based on their pleas, prosecution counsel, Mela Gwani, prayed the Court to convict and sentence them accordingly.
Justice Sifawa convicted and sentenced the defendants to three and half years imprisonment with an option of N70,000 fine each.
