In view of their pleas of guilt, the prosecution counsels, Samuel Daji, E.S.Okon and Ukemruwem Anana, informed the court that the defendants had entered into a "plea bargain" with the EFCC.

Consequently, the facts of the case against the defendants were reviewed by the prosecution.

Their statements as well as documents recovered from them were tendered and admitted in evidence by the court.

In view of this, the prosecution urged the court to “convict the defendants as charged in the plea bargain agreement".

The Judge also convicted and sentenced Kinsley and Toluwalope to four months imprisonment each.

All items recovered from the defendants were ordered to be forfeited to the Federal Government.
