They were convicted on charges ranging from indecent acts, printing, and sale of an obscene book, abetting, and circulating video of a 16-year-old girl.

It was gathered that Hayatu Tafida took the 16-year-old girl to a guest-inn in Sokoto and had his way with the girl. He recorded all that transpired between him and the girl which was 18 minutes video. The event took place in October 2017 and since then Tafida and his friends have been using it to blackmail the girl. The mother of the 16-year-old girl took the matter to court as the circulation of her daughter's video led to the cancellation of her wedding scheduled to hold in October 2021.

The Chief Magistrate who considered the plea of the defendants gave them an option of paying a 400,000 fine. He said on the obscene and indecent act, each of the defendants will pay a 200,000 fine and will spend 2 years in prison. On the sale of the obscene book, they will pay a fine of 50,000 each or two years imprisonment. On abetment, each defendant will pay a 50,000 fine or face six months imprisonment. The Chief Magistrate also ordered the defendants to pay 100,000 to the victim as compensation.
