Aje-Afunwa said that the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and should be gainfully employed.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Kolawole, who resides at Agege area of Lagos, is facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, obtaining money under false pretences and stealing.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Prosecutor, ASP Peter Nwaongwu, told the court that the defendant and others still at large, committed the offences on July 8, at Fidelity Bank, Agege Branch.

Nwaongwu alleged that the defendant and his accomplices conspired among themselves to obtain N8 million under false pretences from Mrs Chibuike Obi to sell a building to her.

He said that the building which is situated at No 8, Christ Foundation St., Ilupeju, Oke Aro, belonged to the defendant.

According to him, the offences contravened Sections 287, 314 (3) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2015.

Aje-Afunwa adjourned the case till Jan. 9, 2020 for hearing.
