Justice Sa’ad Muhammad of the Gombe State High Court on Thursday sentenced the duo of Innocent Uche Clinton and Emmanuel Okanni for fraud.
Innocent and Emmanuel specialised in scamming unsuspecting members of the public by sending text messages claiming to be from customer care of different Banks and telling the recipients that their transaction accounts were closed due to BVN issues.
They thereafter request for the BVN of their victims in order to rectify the problem.
The convicts, who hail from Orlu Ngaba Local Government Area of Imo State were sentenced to six months imprisonment each.
