Woman in court for allegedly misappropriating N144,740
The police on Friday arraigned a 25-year-old woman, Queen Ogbunu, in a Grade I Area Court, Kubwa, for allegedly misappropriating N144, 740.
Ogbunu, who resides in Kagini, Abuja is charged with criminal breach of trust, misappropriation and cheating.
The Prosecution Counsel, Babajide Olanipekun told the court that the complainant, Irene Osobase of Kubwa, Abuja, reported the matter at the Kubwa Police Station on July 24.
