Agabe, 38, whose address was not given, is facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, fraud and stealing.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Cyriacus Osuji, told the court that the accused committed the offences on March 20, at No. 3, Oke-Imale St., Sangotedo, Ajah, Lagos.

He said that the accused collected the money from the complainant for repairs on her Nissan Jeep, a representation he knew was false.

“The accused converted the money to his personal use and all efforts by the complainant to get back her money proved abortive,’’ Osuji said.

The prosecutor said that the accused also refused to give the complainant her Jeep with registration no. SJ 597 AAA, which he took for repairs.

“The accused forged a police extract from crime diary and swore to an affidavit for the loss of the vehicle particulars,’’ he said.

The offences contravened Sections 287 (1), 365 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty the charge.

The magistrate, Mrs A. A. Adetunji, granted the accused bail in the sum of N200, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

She said that the sureties must be gainfully employed and should show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The magistrate adjourned the case till April 19 for mention.
