Don't mind them, they'll always plead not guilty because they hope to have their lawyers plead their 'guilt' on circumstantial grounds. Perhaps they'd contest the actual amount stolen, and possibly reveal other allies in it with them. Such stealing from banks/financial institutions is always a network na.

How much is two years tax payment? You can pay as low as 6500naira per year.

It's always better to plead not guilty so you can argue your case.
Sometimes things are not as it seems.
