The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Sokoto Zonal Office, yesterday secured the conviction of one Mobuse John before Hon. Justice Muhammad Sifawa of Sokoto State High Court, for cheating.Upon arraignment, John pleaded guilty to the charge.

In view of the plea, the prosecution counsel asked the court to convict and sentence the defendant in line with the provision of the law and prayed the court to close the website as well as the account used in committing the offence.

However, defence counsel, Shamsu Dauda, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy, as his client was a first-time offender who had become remorseful.He also told the court that the convict had fully restituted the victim.
