The Ekiti State Police Command has arraigned two men, Kunle Komolafe, 52, and Ademola Fagbule (65) before an Ado Ekiti Magistrate Court over alleged visa fraud.
The police prosecutor, Inspector Elijah Adejare, told the court on Thursday that the defendants committed the offence at Arolo Ekiti on January 20.
He said, “On January 20, in Aramoko-Ekiti, the defendants did obtain the sum of N250,000 from one Olorunfemi Komolafe on the pretext of processing visa documents which they failed to do.
“The defendants committed the offence which is punishable under Section 329 (1) (b) of the Criminal Law of Ekiti State 2021,” he said.
Counsel to the defendants, Adekunle Aladesuyi, urged the court to grant his client liberal terms, saying they would not jump bail.
The Magistrate, Tomiwa Daramola, granted bail of N50,000 each with one surety in like sum to the defendants.
The magistrate adjourned the case to September 8 for hearing.
