  1. Noted, thanks for updating us on this issue. Let’s see how it will go then wether is guilty or not. I hope his case will serve as a deterrent to other internet fraudsters.

  2. Pleading not guilty upon the evidences. though, you are not guilty until you were proven otherwise by the court of law. let us see how it will go. I will just implore those who are in the internet fraudsters to desist from it and go back to legitimate business.

  3. Hmmmmm!!! We are waiting and watching as events go on
    Nobody is seen as guilty unless declared guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction
    Let the judges do their work by judging the case with utmost good faith and the fear of God
    If he is discharged and squited do be it, if he is found guilty of the charges, he faces the penalty/penalties
