The 2015 Cybercrime (Prohibition and Prevention) Act, according to Joseph, was violated by the offenses. Section 12 of the Act.


According to the prosecutor, the offenses were also in violation of Sections 287 and 411 of the Lagos State Criminal Law of 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Each defendant was given permission to post bail in the amount of N1 million with two sureties by M. Kayode Alamu.
