Vaughan, whose address was not given, is standing trial on a two-count charge of fraud and stealing.
He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge preferred against him by the police.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Friday Mameh, had told the court that the defendant committed the offences sometime in 2016, at Fadeyi in Shomolu, Lagos.
He said that the defendant fraudulently obtained the sum from one Mrs Olufunke Ogunfuye in the guise of procuring U.S. visas and flight tickets for her and some others.
He said that Ogunfuye and the other were to travel to South Carolina, U.S., for a festival.
“Instead of procuring the visas and flight tickets, the defendant used the money for his personal use,” Mameh said.
He said that the offences contravened Sections 287 and 314 (1) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Magistrate B. I. Bakare granted the defendant bail in the sum of N1 million with two sureties in like sum.
Bakare ordered that the sureties should show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
The case was adjourned until May 2, for mention.
