A 26-year-old woman, Oluwafikayomi Makinde, who allegedly defrauded a man of N606, 000 on the pretext of supplying him agricultural products, was on Monday brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Prosecutor, ASP. Benson Emuerhi, said that the defendant obtained N606, 000 from one Sodeeq Ademuyiwa with an assurance to supply him agricultural products, a representation she knew to be false.
Emuerhi told the court that the defendant committed the offences from Jan. 26 to Feb. 25 in Lagos.
He said that the defendant obtained the money through the Access Bank account and diverted it for her personal use.
The Chief Magistrate, Mr T.A. Adegun, granted the defendant N100, 000 bail with two sureties in like sum.
Adegun ordered that the sureties must be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
The magistrate adjourned the case until Aug. 8 for mention. (NAN)
