One 39-year old sales representative, Kolade Timothy was on Wednesday, February 20, arraigned before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
Naija News reports that the defendant is facing a two-count charge bordering on fraud and stealing, although he has already pleaded not guilty to the charges levied against him.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Michael Unah told the court that the defendant who also doubles as a driver, committed the alleged offences from March 2017 to December 2018, at Smart B. Ocean Company Ltd, Meiran, Lagos, where he (the defendant) stole the money from the complainant, Mrs Ajose Titilayo.
“All attempts to recover the money from the defendant proved abortive,” the prosecutor said.
Michael Unah noted that the offences violate Sections 314 and 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015, (Revised).
However, the Chief Magistrate, Mr A. A. Fashola, who presided over the judgment, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum and adjourned the case till February 27 for mention.
