A 40-year-old man, Segun Aliu, was on Monday arraigned before the Ota MagistratesCourt in Ogun for defrauding a woman of N136,000.

Aliu is accused by the police of fraud, conspiracy, and receiving money under pretence.

The defendant and other suspects, who remain at large, committed the crimes on October 30 at around 2:00 p.m. along the Abeokuta-Lagos Expressway in Ota, according to police prosecutor E.O. Adaraloye.

Olufunso Shoremekun, the complainant, was allegedly defrauded of N136,000 by the defendant and his associates under the pretence of giving her money in exchange, according to Adaraloye.

The prosecutor said the offences contravened sections 390(9), 419 and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.

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

The accused was given a bail of N100,000 with one surety in the same amount by the magistrate, A. O. Adeyemi.

The surety was required by Adeyemi to live in the court's geographic jurisdiction, to be gainfully employed, and to provide documentation of tax payments to the Ogun government.

She set a new hearing date for the case on December 15.
