A 48-year-old man, Abiodun Musiliu, was on Wednesday brought before a Yaba Chief Magistrate Court in Lagos for allegedly forging documents and signature, and claiming to be the Oba of Epe.

The defendant is facing a two-count charge of forgery and being in possession of fraudulent documents.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The prosecutor, Roman Unuigbe, told the court that the defendant committed the offenses on Aug. 12, at Eredo area of Epe in  Lagos State.

According to him, the defendant forged letters and signature in the name of Eredo ruling house, claiming to be the sitting Oba.

He said that the stool of Oba Orijeru of Igbooye Eredo in Epe, had been vacant for a while.

He said that despite that, the defendant was writing fake letters and peddling forged documents to get the position’s benefits.

The  prosecutor said that the  offenses contravened Sections 320, 362 (1) (b) and 365 (3) (n) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015 (Revised).

Chief Magistrate  Adeola Adedayo granted the defendant bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

She directed that the sureties must be residing within the court’s jurisdiction and be gainfully employed with evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

Adedayo adjourned the case until Oct. 26 for mention.
