He is facing a seven-count charge of obtaining money by false pretence and possession of fraudulent documents brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).He pleaded not guilty.
EFCC prosecuting counsel, Samuel Daji thereafter asked the court for a trial date.
Justice Taiwo granted his request and adjourned the matter till September 17.

Earlier, Daji, had told the court that the defendant committed the offences sometime in 2018 and on May 24, in Lagos.
