The Ogun State Police Command has arraigned a Point Of Sale (POS) operator for fraud.

33-year-old Ayoola Seun was on Tuesday arraigned before an Ota Magistrate Court in Ogun State for allegedly defrauding a company of N891,000.

The prosecutor, Inspector E.O Adaraloye, told the court that the defendant committed the offences on October 20, 2022, around 10:00 a.m.

Seun according to the police committed the offence at No. 5, Fatimilola Street, Afobaje, Itele, Awori, Ota in Ogun State.

Adaraloye said that the defendant was given N891,000 to pay some customers by Monie Point International but failed to disburse the money.

“The defendant fraudulently converted the sum of N891,000 to personal use instead of fulfilling the agreement between him and the company,” he said.

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

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

The Magistrate, A.O. Adeyemi, granted bail to the defendant in the sum of N100,000 with one surety in like sum.

Adeyemi ordered that the surety must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and be gainfully employed with evidence of tax payment to the Ogun State government.

She also adjourned the matter till April 3 for further hearing.
