Two convicted internet fraudsters have been sentenced to three months of community service by a Kwara State High Court.
Justice Sikiru Oyinloye on Thursday, sentenced Akinola Opeyemi and Owolabi Olajide and ordered them to sweep the Physics Department of the University of Ilorin and the premises of Saint Anthony Secondary School, Ilorin, for three months or pay N50,000 option of fine each.
According to a statement released by the commission and made available to IMPACT NEWS on Saturday, the duos were prosecuted by the Ilorin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Delivering his judgment, Justice Oyinloye said, “I have carefully considered the evidence before the court, the exhibits tendered and the uncontroverted testimony of the prosecution witness. This honourable court holds that the prosecution has proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt, the defendants are hereby convicted as charged.”
“In sentencing them to community service, the judge directed the Head of Physics Department, University of Ilorin, and the Principal, Saint Anthony Secondary School, to issue an assessment letter on the convicts’ compliance with the judgment to the Chief Registrar of the Kwara State High Court, at the completion of their community service. Poor level of compliance, the judge stated, would earn the convicts a direct six months imprisonment,” the statement read.
