It was yet another victory in the battle against crime as Justice P I Ajoku of the Federal High Court, sitting in Benin City, Edo State, convicted one Lucky Ogada, aka Peter Lucas for offences bordering on fraudulent trick and attempting to obtain by false pretences.
Upon his arraignment on a one count charge, Ogada pleaded guilty to the offence.
In view of his plea of guilt, the prosecution counsel, Larry Aso Peters, urged the court to convict and sentence the defendant accordingly.
In his response, defence counsel, Afamefuna Agbakor pleaded with the court to tamper justice with mercies as the defendant was a first time offender who has become remorseful since he was arrested and has also promised to desist from such despicable act.
