He, however, gave him an option of fine of N200,000, ordering him to “depose to an affidavit of undertaking to be of good behaviour”.

Maha ruled that all items recovered from him, including a Samsung Galaxy S9 should be forfeited to the Federal Government.

Ayomide’s trial to jail began when operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) investigated his alleged involvement in cyber crime and was charged with one-count bordering on cybercrime.
