By Ekene Agbor, Osogbo
An Ile-Ife Magistrate’s Court in Osun state on Tuesday, remanded a 33-year-old man, Gabriel Udom, for allegedly defrauding one Alhaji Popoola Ogundoyin to the tune of N400,000.
The Prosecutor, Inspector Sunday Osanyintuyi, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on July 22, 2020 around 10:00 pm at Lagere Area, Ile-Ife.
Osanyintuyi said that Udom, aged 33, defrauded Ogundoyin by asking him to pay the cash sum of N400,000 into his UBA account number: 2150239277, named Gabriel Udom, after assuring him of securing a residence permit for his daughter who resides in the United States of America.
He added that the defendant pretended to be a travel agent but later failed to secure the permit.
According to the prosecutor, the defendant conspired with others now at large to defraud Ogundoyin.
The Prosecutor argued that the offence contravened sections 419(A) and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to two-count charge of conspiracy and fraud.
The defence counsel, Mr M.A. Gilbert, applied for the bail of the defendant in most liberal term and promised that his client would provide reliable sureties.
Magistrate A.A. Adebayo did not grant the bail of the defendant, but ordered for his remand in Ile-Ife Nigerian Correctional custody pending the consideration of his bail.
Adebayo adjourned the case till October 27.
