The accused, who could not meet his bail conditions, was, however, remanded in prison pending when he would perfect his bail conditions.

Magistrate Risikat Olayemi, who gave the ruling, also granted the accused one surety in like sum.

Olayemi said the surety, who must swear to an affidavit of means, should also reside within the court’s jurisdiction and present two recent passport-size photographs of himself and that of the accused.

The offences contravened Sections 419 and 517 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2002.

Counsel to the accused, Mrs Module Olufemi, urged the court to grant him bail, promising he will not jump bail.

The case was adjourned until May 8.
