Man, 32, docked over alleged N185,000 fraud



A 32-year-old man, Innocent Eze, was, on Monday, arraigned before an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court over alleged N185,000 fraud.

Eze, whose address was not provided, is facing a charge of fraud before the court.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Oriyomi Akinwale, told the court that the defendant committed the offence with some other persons, still at large in April 2018, at Oke-Age Street in Ado-Ekiti.

Akinwale said that the defendant collected N185,000 from the complainant, Mr Chukwuemeka Reuben, under the pretext of getting a shop for him, which he failed to do.

Akinwale said that the offence contravened Section 419 of the Criminal Law of Ekiti State, 2012.

He urged the court to adjourn the case to enable him study the case file and assemble his witnesses.

The Defence Counsel, Mr Timi Omotosho, urged the court to grant his client bail, promising that he would not jump bail.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Adesoji Adegboye, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N200,000, with two sureties in like sum.

Adegboye adjourned the case till Feb. 3, 2020 for mention.
