An Ikeja Special Offences Court on Thursday ordered that a man, Oladipo Sobowale, who allegedly defrauded his business partner of N12.5 million, be remanded in EFCC custody.
The anti-graft agency charged Sobowale with obtaining money by false pretence. He pleaded not guilty.
Justice Mojisola Dada adjourned the case until Feb. 2, 2021, for trial.
Earlier, E.S. Okongwu, EFCC counsel, told the court that the defendant committed the offence in July 2018 in Lagos.
