Ayoola Seun, a 33-year-old Point of Sale operator, was brought before an Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun State on Tuesday for allegedly defrauding a firm of N891,000.
The prosecutor, Inspector E.O Adaraloye, told the court that the defendant committed the acts on October 20, 2022 about 10:00 a.m.
Seun was accused of committing the crime at No. 5, Fatimilola St., Afobaje, Itele, Awori, Ota, Ogun State.
According to Adaraloye, the defendant was paid N891,000 by Monie Point International to pay some customers but failed to do so.
“The defendant fraudulently converted the sum of N891,000 to personal use instead of fulfilling the agreement between him and the company,” he said.
The prosecutor said that the offences contravened Sections 390(9) and 419 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Magistrate, Mrs A.O. Adeyemi, granted bail to the defendant in the sum of N100,000 with one surety in like sum.
Adeyemi ordered that the surety must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and be gainfully employed with evidence of tax payment to the Ogun State government.
She adjourned the case till April 3 for further hearing.
