The prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the defendant committed the alleged offences on August 20 at a branch of Fidelity Bank in Ilupeju, Lagos.

Akeem alleged that the defendant called the branch manager, Mr. Uche Okam, on phone and told him that his gang would come and ‘collect their shares’ (sic) from the bank.

The prosecutor told the court that the defendant’s phone number was tracked and he was arrested.

According to the prosecutor, the alleged offences contravene Sections 56, 406 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

He however, pleaded not guilty to the charges as the Chief Magistrate, Mrs. O. A. Layinka, admitted the defendant to N100,000 bail, with one surety in like sum.

Layinka adjourned the case until December 16 for mention.
