A visa agent, Olushola Odusote, on Monday appeared in a Magistrates’ Court in Ejigbo, Lagos, for allegedly defrauding a client of N2.2 million.
The police charged Odusote, 47, whose address was not provided, with fraud, theft and breach of the peace.
He, however, pleaded not guilty.
Simon said that the defendant obtained the N2.2 million from the complainant, Ms Patricia Okere, with a promise to procure a Sychelles visa but he failed to do so.
He alleged that the defendant converted the money to his personal use.
Simon said that the defendant conducted himself in a manner that was likely to cause breach of public peace.
The prosecutor said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 168 (d), 287(7) and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2015.
