Kaduna, Aug. 9, 2019 A 42-year-old farmer, Musa Isiaka, on Friday appeared in a Chief Magistrates’ Court in Kaduna State, for allegedly defrauding a businesswoman of N1 million.

Isiaka, whose address was not provided, is charged with breach of trust, cheating and fraud, to which he pleaded not guilty.

The prosecution counsel, Insp Leo Chidi, told the court that the defendant committed the offence in April in Kaduna.
