A 54-year-old man, Obi Johnson, has been arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court in Lagos over allegation of fraudulently obtaining over N6.5 million from five persons, with the pretence of securing Kuwait and Europe visas for them.

The accused was said to have collected N5.2 million from Joseph Onyebuchi; N350,000 from Warikwa Gift; N600,000 from Chima Ogema; N350,000 from Ambrose Emezi, and N600,000 from Udemba Ifeanyi.

However, when the charge was read to the accused, before Magi-strate Abimbola Komolafe, he pleaded not guilty.

The magistrate granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 and ordered that N100,000 be deposited in the Chief Registrar’s account.

Magistrate Komolafe adjourned the case to March 12.
