43-Year-Old Woman Faces Jail Term for Duping Man N30 Million, Issuing Him Fake Cheque



Odunayo Adebayo, a 43-year-old woman, has been arrested and charged before Ogba Magistrate Court in Lagos State for allegedly swindling Mr Shola Olabitan to the tune of the sum of N30m under false pretences at Magbo area of Badagry in Lagos.

According to a report by P.M. Express newspaper, shortly after Odunayo swindled Shola for an undisclosed transaction, he (Shola) reported the case to the Commissioner of the Police in Lagos, who ordered a crack team of police investigators to unravel the circumstances behind the matter. She was trailed, arrested and detained for interrogation over the allegation.
During interrogation, Odunayo reportedly admitted to having obtained the said money from Shola and offered to refund the money to him by issuing two Access Bank cheques of N10m and N11m, which were not honoured when the complainant went to the bank to collect the money.

However, it turned out that the Access Bank cheques with numbers 00053402094 and 00053402093 respectively, which Odunayo had given to Shola were said to be fake because there was no money in the account.
Thus, the Police charged Odunayo before the Ogba Magistrates Court for the alleged offence where she pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Supol Akeem Raji, then asked the Court to give a date for a hearing since she pleaded not guilty to enable the Police to prove that she committed the alleged offence.

The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. B.O. Osunsanmi, granted her bail and ordered her remand in the Correctional Centre at Kirikiri town, Lagos, pending when she will perfect her bail conditions. The matter was adjourned till 26th July 2022.
