A mechanic has been sentenced to one year in jail by a Kwara State High Court, sitting in Ilorin for cybercrime offenses.

The trial Judge, Justice Mahmud Abdulgafar on Thursday, October 13, sentenced Muhamed Bolaji to 1 year in jail, after finding him guilty of offenses bordering on cybercrime and possession of fraudulent funds.
