Man, 30, docked for alleged N1.1m fraud


A 30-year-old man, Fabian Udenyi, appeared before an Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court on Friday for allegedly obtaining the sum of N1.1 million under false pretences.

The defendant, whose residential address was not provided, is standing trial on a two-count charge of fraud and stealing, preferred against him by the police.

The prosecutor, ASP Benedict Aigbokhan, told the court that the defendant committed the offences sometime in February, at No. 10, Adesina Street, Idimu, Lagos.

He alleged that the defendant obtained the sum of N1.1 million from the complainant, Mr Saheed Balogun, under the guise of doing business with the money but converted it to his personal use.

The offences, according to him, contravened sections 287(1) and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2015.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge.

He was granted bail in the sum of N300,000 with two sureties in like sum by Magistrate I. A. Ariyo, who ordered that the sureties should be gainfully employed and show evidence of tax payments to the Lagos State Government.

The case was adjourned until Sept. 4.
