Police on Monday arraigned a 50-year-old woman, Odujole Folashade, at the Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun State for alleged N2.4 million fraud.
Odujole was arraigned on a two-count charge of obtaining money under false pretence and fraud.
The police prosecutor, Insp. E.O. Adaraloye told the court that the defendant committed the offences sometime in July 2018 at Adalemo area of Sango-Ota.
He said the defendant collected N2.4 million from the complainant, Micheal Opaleye, and promised to assist him to procure a United States visa.
“The defendant converted the money to personal use instead of fulfilling the agreement between them,” the prosecutor said.
