Teacher arraigned for visa fraud


A teacher, Oladotun Ayedun, 44, on Thursday appeared before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly obtaining N620,000 from two people under the pretext of procuring Canadian and Spanish visas for them.

Prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the offences were committed on July 30, 2017 at Adepegba St., Abule Egba, Lagos.

Akeem alleged that the defendant collected N500,000 from Mr Ethohason Williams on the pretext of procuring a Canadian Visa for him.

He also alleged that the defendant also obtained N120,000 from Mr Raji Akinola on the pretext that he would procure a Spanish visa for him.

The prosecutor said that the defendant did not procure the visas for the complainants and all efforts by the complainants to get their money refunded proved abortive.

The defendant pleaded not guilty.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs O. A. Layinka, admitted the defendant to N500,000 bail.

She adjourned the case until March 31.
