Police in Ondo State have arraigned one Olayiwola Taofik before a Magistrate Court in Akure for allegedly defrauding one Godwin Olayeni the sum of N25m.

He said the offenses contravened sections 383, 418 and punishable under sections 390(9) and 419 of the Criminal Code, Cap 37 Vol 1, Laws of Ondo State Nigeria 2006.

Presiding Magistrate, Olanipekun Mayomi, admitted the accused to N1m bail with two sureties in like sum.

He said the sureties must be residents within the court’s jurisdiction.

The case was adjourned to December 14, 2020 for hearing.
