The three fraudsters are Joseph Moses, Raji Tijjani and Albert Chris Bulus.
They were jailed after pleading guilty to one-count separate charges bordering on impersonation and obtaining under false pretence.
The three defendants pleaded guilty to each of their charges.
In view of their guilty pleas, prosecution counsel, S.H. Shehu prayed the court to convict and sentence them accordingly.
Justice Sifawa thereafter convicted and sentenced all three defendants to four years imprisonment each.
