Employee Arraigned For Disappearring With Baba Ijebu?s Money In Lagos Employee Arraigned For Disappearring With Baba Ijebu?s Money In Lagos

A middle aged wom­an, who ran away with her employer’s money, has been arraigned before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court. She was the manager of her employer’s lotto company and was charged with N168,000 fraud.

The accused, Monsurat Showemimo, is facing a charge of stealing to which she pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Jo­seph Ajebe, said that the accused was employed as the manager in charge of lottery (Premier Lotto and Pool popularly known as “Baba Ijebu”) by the com­plainant, Mrs Roseline Ayodele, who reported the fraud.

He said the offence was committed sometime in April 2016 at No. 14, Fadeyi Street, off Ajayi Road, Oke-Ira, Ogba in Ikeja.

“The accused was asked to be remitting daily sales to the complainant’s ac­count which she never did. Rather, she converted N168,000 proceeds from sales to her use.”

Ajebe said the accused disappeared after com­mitting the fraud and was recently apprehended by the police.

The offence contra­vened Section 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011 which carries a three-year imprisonment.

Chief Magistrate Alex­ander Komolafe granted the accused bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties, who must be gainfully employed with an evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The case has been ad­journed to March 20 for trial.
