A 43-year-old medical doctor, Akolawole Michael, risks being jailed for allegedly defrauding a colleague of a sum of 900,000 Naira for the purchase of land.

Akolawole was on Wednesday arraigned before a Magistrate Court sitting in Ado-Ekiti over the matter.

At the Thursday proceeding, Police prosecutor, Sgt. Oriyomi Akinwale, told the Court that the accused committed the offence sometimes in the month of January 2013 in Ado-Ekiti.

The policeman alleged that the doctor fraudulently obtained the sum of N900,000 from one Babalola Olawale, a junior doctor under the pretense that he could sell six plots of land to him at Afao road in Ado-Ekiti.

According to him, the accused committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 419 of Criminal Code Cap C16 Vol. 1 Laws of Ekiti State 2012.

The accused pleaded not guilty, while his counsel, Busuyi Ayorinde, applied for his bail, promising the Court that he would not jump bail.

The prosecutor objected to the bail application because the accused had jumped bail in the police station.

‎Magistrate Taiwo Ajibade, consequently granted bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in the sum of N50,000 each, who must be resident within Ado-Ekiti with verifiable addresses.

Ajibade said that one of the sureties must be a senior medical officer, while the other must be a civil servant of grade level 12 or executive member of a landlord. (Channels TV)
