The prosecution counsel, Ade Adeyanju, told the court that the defendant was entrusted with a motorcycle for commercial purpose.
He alleged that the defendant who failed to remit the N7,000 agreed on, later reported the motorcycle stolen.
The prosecutor said the matter was reported at the Nyanya Police Station by the complainant, Agaba Daniel.
He said the offence contravened sections 312 and 287 of the Penal Code.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The jJudge, Anas Mohammed, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N300, 000.
