The 21-year-old, according to a statement released by the spokesperson of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Wilson Uwujaren, “actually found favour before Justice Patricia Ajoku of the Federal High Court, Ibadan Division, who commuted the one-year punishment proposed for his offence to six months.”

Justice Ajoku, according to Uwujaren, succumbs to Ogunremi’s lawyer’s passionate plea that his client had missed two examination sessions owing to the criminal charge filed against him.
