Female Bureau de Change operator docked over N42m fraud

A self proclaimed Bureau de Change operator, Sekinotu  Bolanle  Alli was on Tuesday arraigned before an Ikeja high Court for allegedly defrauding one Olabanji Bamiduro  of  N27 million under the false pretext of changing the money to the pounds equivalent.

Alli who is based in the United Kingdom, allegedly connived with one Babatunde Alowonle Hassan and Roseline Eto Etchie sometimes in April 2016 to commit the alleged fraud.

According to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the duo also collected the sum of N15 million from Prince Kamal Adeyemi.

They allegedly convinced Adeyemi that they had the sum of £30,000 British Pounds which they claimed they wanted to sell. They however collected the Naira equivalent  and refused to honour the agreement.

The duo however pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to them.

A mild drama however ensued when the presiding Judge, Justice Hakeem Oshodi ordered that the defendants be remanded in prison till 11 January 2017. Alli burst into tears while in the dock. She sobbed uncontrollably when the judge made the pronouncement.
