Fraud: ICPC arraigns poultry bird, egg supplier in Lagos

He allegedly collected money on the pretext that he would supply the complainant poultry products.

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has arraigned an alleged fraudster identified as Mr. Aderintola Areola for allegedly defrauding one Sonia Laburta of the sum of N120,000.

Areola was arraigned on a two-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretence.

He allegedly collected money on the pretext that he would supply the complainant 30 bags of poultry feeds, 15 crates of eggs, 10 points of lay birds, and a carton of broilers to the woman in March 27, but failed to do so.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Justice Serifat Solebo, at the Special Offences Court in Ikeja, granted Areola bail in the sum of N100,000 and a surety in like sum. The case was adjourned to May 21 for trial.
