The prosecutor said all efforts by the complainant to retrieve his money from the accused had proved abortive.

The Police prosecutor, Insp. Cletus Ibrahim told the court that one Garba Idris of Barkin Sale, Minna reported the matter to the police on September 9.

When the charge was read to the accused person, he pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

The Judge, Ahmed Bima, reserved sentence till September 18, and ordered that the accused be remanded in prison.
