The convicts, according to the anti-graft agency, were arrested after some of their victims petitioned the EFCC that they obtained several sums of money from them under the guise that they were going to give them employment and contract.

The convicts were first arraigned on May 16, 2016, and they pleaded guilty to all the charge read against them.
