The defendant pleaded guilty to the charge brought against him by the EFCC. 
While reviewing the facts of the case, Lamidi Ibrahim,  an operative of the EFCC told the court that the defendant was arrested along with three others based on intelligence reports. He said they all confessed to the crime.

The Judge however ordered that an iPhone 6 recovered from the convict be forfeited to the Federal Government.
