40-year-old man faces trial over N1.1m visa fraud

A 40-year-old, Kabiru Adeniran, was on Tuesday docked at an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, for allegedly obtaining N1.1 million from people on the pretext of procuring a Polish visa for them.

Police have slammed on the accused a five-count charge bordering on stealing and obtaining money under false pretences.

The accused denied the charge, but Police Prosecutor Chinalu Uwadione told the court that the accused committed the offences between February and May this year at No. 8, Kano St., Ebute Meta.

He alleged that the accused collected N1.1 million from the complainants -Azeez Falana, Noimat Lawal and Tunde Adisa – with a promise to get Polish visa for them.

The offences contravened Sections 287 and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

Ruling on the bail application of the accused after he pleaded not guilty, the Magistrate, Mrs A.S. Okubuke, granted him N100,000 bail with two sureties in like sum.

June 19 has been fixed for mention in the case.
