A 35-year-old travel agent, Alao Ganiyu, on Monday appeared in a Chief
Magistrate Court in Kaduna for allegedly defrauding a traveller of N1.7
million.

The police charged Ganiyu with three counts of criminal breach of trust,
cheating, and forgery.

The Prosecutor, Sunday Baba told the court that the complainant, Lawal
Salami reported the matter on Oct. 25, through a petition to the Deputy
Commissioner of Police State Criminal and Investigation Department.

to the Bahamas for the complainant.

converted it to his personal use and then forged a visa and ticket for the
complainant which was rejected at the airport.

and 307 of the Kaduna State Panel Code Law 2017.

After the charge was read to him, the defendant pleaded not guilty.

The Magistrate, Aisha Danja, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of
N500,000, with two sureties in like sum.

Danja also ordered that sureties must be reliable and must be resident
within the jurisdiction of the court with fixed residential addresses.

The magistrate adjourned the case until Nov. 25, for a hearing.
