Banker And Accomplice Arraigned For N24m Fraud In Lagos (Photo)

The Lagos Zonal Office of EFCC on Wednesday, March 20, 2019,
arraigned Olamide Salvador and Richard Olusegun Olatunji before Justice
Sherifat Solebo of the Special Offence Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos on a
five-count charge bordering on stealing, forgery and conspiracy to the
tune of N24, 183, 120 (Twenty Four Million, One Hundred and Eighty-Three
Thousand, One Hundred and Twenty Naira).

The first defendant, Salvador, allegedly conspired with the second
defendant, Olatunji, a manager in Stanbic IBTC, and some others now at
large to defraud one Foster Ene of the said sum of money.

One of the counts reads, “that you, Olamide Salvador, trading under
the name and style of Stringent Global Concept; Richard Olusegun
Olatunji trading under the name and style as Richard Ventures, Tiwa
Onoja (now at large) and Mary Osagie Abiodun (now at large) sometime in
December 2016, in Lagos within the Ikeja Judicial Division, conspired to
steal the sum of N18, 183, 120 (Eighteen Million, One Hundred and
Eighty – Three Thousand, One Hundred and Twenty Naira) only property of
Foster Ene, being part of the money he paid to you to secure the United
States Dollars and committed an offence contrary to Section 409 of the
Criminal Code Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011.”

Another count reads, “that you, Olamide Salvador, trading under the
name and style of Stringent Global Concept, Tiwa Onoja (now at large)
and Mary Osagie Abiodu (now at large) sometime in December 2016, in
Lagos within the Ikeja Judicial Division, dishonestly converted to the
use of Kenechukwu Okafor, the sum of N6, 000, 000. 00 (Six Million Naira
Only) property of Foster Ene, being part of the money he paid to you to
secure the United States Dollars and committed an offence contrary to
Section 278 (1) (b) and (2) (f) of the Criminal Code Law of Lagos State
of Nigeria, 2011.”

The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against
them. In view of their plea, the prosecution counsel, G.C. Akaogu, asked
for a trial date and prayed that the defendants be remanded in prison
custody.

However, counsels to the defendants, I. T. Oyedepo and Abdulrahman
Dirisu respectively informed the court of bail applications on behalf of
their clients.

Oyedepo, counsel to Salvador, (first defendant) prayed the court to
grant his client bail in liberal terms in an application dated March 8,
2019. Dirisu, counsel to Olatunji, (second defendant), also pleaded same
for his client, pending the determination of the case.

Justice Solebo granted each of the defendants bail in the sum of N10,
000,000.00 (Ten Million Naira) and two sureties in like sum. The
sureties must be resident in Lagos with proof of residence, proof of
employment and tax payment in the past three years.

One of the two sureties for each of the defendants must also be a
property owner in Lagos, which will be verified by the registrar of the
court. Justice Solebo, however, ordered the defendants to be remanded in
prison custody pending the fulfilment of their bail conditions and
adjourned the matter to April 29 and 30, 2019.
