A 46-year old man, Oluborode Olajide, on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 appeared before an Osogbo Magistrates’ Court in Osun over an alleged fraud of N1.3million.
The Prosecutor, Supol Mireti Wilson, told the court that the accused, under the pretence that he was a car dealer, collected the said amount from one Akanbi Odurayo, and he failed to deliver a car paid for by the complainant.
Wilson said the offence committed contravened Section 419 and 390(9) of the Criminal Code, Cap 34, Volume 11, Laws of Osun, 2003.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge preferred against him.
Counsel to the accused , Mr Daniel Olawale, prayed the court to grant his client bail in the most liberal terms.
The Magistrate, Mrs Fatimoh Sodamade, granted the accused bail in the sum of N1, 000, 000 and a surety in like sum.
Sodamade said the surety must reside within the court’s jurisdiction, with evidence of tax payment and two passport-size photographs, attached with an affidavit of means.
The case was adjourned to April 4, for hearing.
