A 34-year-old businessman, Oluwabunkola Alawode, was on Thursday docked before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court over alleged N1 million obtained under false pretences.

The defendant, who resides at Abioye area of Egan in Igando, Lagos, was arraigned on charges of obtaining by false pretences and stealing.

The Prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the offences were committed on Oct. 2 at Badmus Street, Igando, Lagos.

Akeem alleged that the defendant obtained N1 million from Mrs Funmilayo Olowolagba on false pretences that he was going to procure an American visa for her.

He also alleged that since then, the defendant had been avoiding the complainant and the case was reported at the police station.

The offences, according to the prosecutor, contravened Sections 280 and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs O. A. Layinka, granted the defendant bail of N2 million with two sureties in like sum.

Layinka adjourned the case until Jan. 1, 2020 for mention.
