Estate Agent Docked For Allegedly Defrauding Customer

An Ikorodu Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Friday granted a 52-year-old estate agent  N100,000 bail in a case of  obtaining N150,000 under false pretences.

Chief Magistrate E. O. Ogunkanmi also ordered  the applicant, Agge Akhigbe, to produce  two sureties in like sum.

Akhigbe, whose address was not given, is facing a two-count charge of fraud and obtaining money under false pretences.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Adegeshin Famuyiwa, told the court that the accused committed the offences sometime in March at Apeka, Ikorodu.

He said that the accused obtained the sum  from Mrs Adesanya Abiola on the pretext of  using it to secure an apartment for her.

He submitted that the accused did not secure the apartment nor return there money, thereby  contravening Sections 314 and 280 (2) a of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

The case has been adjourned until Nov. 15 for mention.
