Ademola, 22, who pleaded not guilty to a six-count charge related to fraud and theft, was granted bail in the sum of N50,000.

The Magistrate, Mr Ade Adefulire, in his ruling ordered the accused to produce one responsible surety in like sum.

He adjourned the case till June 14 for further hearing.

The Prosecutor, Mr Ben Ekundayo, told the court that the accused on April 25, at about 2pm at First Bank, Balogun Branch, Lagos Island, defrauded three customers of the bank.
