The police on Thursday arraigned a 41 -year-old spiritualist, Osunbukola Akinola, who allegedly swindled a businessman of N5.6 million, in an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

Akinola, who resides at Ipaja, Lagos, is charged with three counts of conspiracy, obtaining money under false pretences and theft.

He pleaded not guilty.

The prosecution counsel, ASP Ezekiel Ayorinde, told the court that the defendant and one other person, at large committed the offence in March at her residence.

Ayorinde alleged that the defendant obtained the money from the complainant, Mr Akin Augustine, under the pretence of assisting him to ”boost” his marketing business spiritually.

“After the defendant collected the money, she did nothing. And when the complainant requested for his money, she refused to give him.

”The complainant reported the case to the police and the defendant was arrested,”
the prosecutor said.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 287, 314 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Section 287 stipulates three years imprisonment for stealing while section 314 prescribes 15 years for obtaining money under false pretences.

Magistrate B.O Osunsanmi, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Osunsanmi ordered that the sureties must be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government(LASG).

She adjourned the case until Oct. 28 for mention.
