During questioning, the convicts confessed that they specialized in sourcing for their victims on Facebook and Instagram under the false pretence that they were United States military personnel on foreign mission, who had difficulty accessing their funds. They then make their victims give them gift cards which they change to Bitcoin and eventually to Naira.

They were each arraigned on separate one-count charge to which they pleaded "guilty".

The prosecuting counsels, Usman Shehu and Adebayo Soares then prayed the court to convict and sentence them accordingly.
