Court remands herbalist over N.8m fraud

An Ilesa magistrates’ court in Osun State, on Monday, remanded a 22-year-old herbalist, Kehinde Ola, in a correctional centre over N800,000 fraud.

The prosecutor, Insp Jimoh Mufutau, told the court that the defendant committed the offence sometime in February, on Iyemogun Street, Ilesa.

Mufutau said the defendant fraudulently obtained N800,000 from one Adesoji Omolewa under the pretext of taking care of her mother who was sick but converted the money to his own use.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the two-count of fraud and illegal conversion.

The Magistrate, O. A. Oloyade, refused to grant the defendant bail, ordered his remand pending the consideration of his bail and adjourned to August 3. (NAN)
