Samuel pleaded guilty after being arraigned before Justice J.O. Onwuegbuzie for falsely representing himself as a genuine priest or spiritualist and inducing one Rebecca into delivering to him the sum of N103, 000 (One Hundred and Three Thousand Naira).

 

Based on his plea, the prosecution asked the court to convict him accordingly. But his counsel, M.K Agbontien urged the court to temper justice with mercy as the defendant was a first-time offender and had returned the proceeds of crime.

The court convicted and sentenced the defendant to six months imprisonment with an option of N50, 000 (Fifty Thousand Naira) fine.
