According to the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, the defendant’s counsel pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy as his client was a first time offender who was remorseful and willing to make restitution for all his actions.

However, Justice Buba convicted Orie and sentenced him to one-month imprisonment starting from the date of his arrest.

He was also asked to forfeit the sum of $150 and his mobile phone.
