Shonibare said Oladapo, who posed as a travel agent, had promised to assist the complainants, Mrs Folashade Willams and her son, Akinwunmi, to secure two Turkish visas and was paid N300, 000.

“After collecting N300,000 from the complainants, the accused failed to get the visas as promised but converted the money to personal use.”

The offences contravened Sections 390(9), 419, and 516 of the Criminal Law of Ogun State, 2006.

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

Olayinka said the sureties should produce evidence of tax payment to the Ogun Government and should be resident in the state.
