Justice Oyinloye found Oluwatobi guilty of all the three-count charges and aside the prison term, additionally ordered him to pay the sum N105,000 (One Hundred and Five Thousand Naira) fine so as to serve as deterrent to others, nursing such a crime.

Each count attracts three months imprisonment, which runs concurrently.
The convict ran into trouble when the University of Ilorin reported a case of defrauding three accommodation- seeking students to the EFCC.
