He also prayed the Court to remand the defendants with the Nigerian Correctional Service.

Justice Yerima ordered that Aremu be remanded at the Ojo Correctional Centre and Adegboyega, at the Oyo Correctional Centre, Abolongo. Both cases were adjourned till May 6, 2021.

  • It is a sad thing to hear that young men Aremu and Adisa are still involved with internet fraud. Well if they committed a crime they should receive the judgement that will be given. It wouldn't be good if they will have to suffer. I feel everyone should learn from this
