News Police arraign woman in court for alleged N415,000 fraud

The Nigeria Police Force says its investigation shows that Boko Haram, Ansaru and other terror groups are getting support from some Nigerians.

The police, on Friday, arraigned a 37-year-old woman, Folake Aderoyin in court for alleged N415,000 fraud.

Aderoyin, whose address was not provided, is facing a charge of fraud before an Ado-Ekiti Magistrates’ Court.

She, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Olubu Apata, told the court that the defendant committed the offence in January at Ajilosun area of Ado-Ekiti.

Apata said the defendant collected some goods worth N415, 000 from the complainant, Mr Mahmood Badra and promised to deliver the money to him, a representation she knew was false.

He alleged that the defendant fraudulently converted the money to her own use.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened Section 383(1) (2) (a) (b) (f) (4) of the Criminal Law of Ekiti State, 2012.

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

The Defence Counsel, Mr Olawumi Olowofela, urged the court to grant his client bail, promising that she would not jump bail.

The magistrate, Mrs Kehinde Awosika, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Awosika ordered that the sureties must be her blood relations.

She adjourned the case until June 3 for mention.
