The police prosecutor, Mr Ojo Osobu,  told the court that the accused committed the offence in October  2015 in Ado-Ekiti.

He alleged that the accused fraudulently obtained the sum of N6 million from one Mr Ibitoye Oluwafemi  in the pretext  of supplying flour to him.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Idowu Ayenimo, granted the accused bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

One of the sureties, he said, must be a civil servant on Grade Level 10.

He adjourned the case till  May 31 for mention.
