The offence was contrary to Section 1 (1) (a) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006, and punishable under Section 1 (3) of the same Act.

Muhammad pleaded ‘not guilty to the charges. Prosecution counsel, M. E. Eimonye urged the court to fix a date for the start of trial.
