50-year-old woman docked for alleged forgery

A 50-year-old woman, Dasola Akinrinola, was docked at an Iyaganku chief magistrates’ court in Ibadan, Oyo State, for alleged forgery, false pretences and stealing.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the accused, whose address was not disclosed, is standing trial on a four-count charge.

The prosecutor, Inspector Adewale Amos, said that the accused and one other now at large, had on September 6, 2015 at Ogunpa Market, Ibadan, forged a document with the intention to defraud.

The forged document was said to have belonged to Lovak Centre Investment Nigeria Limited.

In addition, Amos alleged that the accused, with another now at large, also obtained N31,700 from one Bukky Ajiboye person on the pretext that they would grant her a loan facility from Lovak Centre Investment Nigeria Limited.

The prosecutor said that the offences committed by the accused contravened Sections 390(9), 419, 467 and 516 of the Criminal Code Cap Vol. II Laws of Oyo State 2000.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The chief magistrate, Mrs Kehinde Durosaro-Tijani, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50,000 with one reliable surety in like sum.

She, thereafter, adjourned the case till August 8 for mention.
