A driver, Yunusa Mohammed, has appeared in a Gwagwalada Magistrate Court, FCT, for allegedly swindling a businessman of N400,000.

The police charged Mohammed of Bako village extension, Kwali Area Council, Abuja with two counts of criminal breach of trust and cheating.

The Prosecution Counsel, Emeka Ihekoronye told the court that in October 2019 the defendant collected the CofO for plot No 442 located at Paiko Kure village valued at N400,000 belonging to Yahaya Sule of opposite Diamond bank, Gwagwalada, Abuja.

He said that the defendant sold the land and converted the money for his own use.

The offenses, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 317 and 322 of the Penal Code.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty telling the court that he did not sell the land but used it as collateral to borrow money to pay his son’s schools fees.

The Magistrate, Yusuf Ibrahim, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two reasonable sureties in like sum.

He ordered the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

Ibrahim adjourned the case until Oct. 14 for hearing.
