It was gathered that the defendant is facing a five-count charge bordering on conspiracy, forgery, fraud, and obtaining by false pretence.


The police prosecutor, Samuel Eredia, told the court that the defendant and others at large, committed the offence on February 20, 2023, in the Lekki Phase 1 area of Lagos State.

Eredia said Agu defrauded one Babatunde Oyebode of N275m by sending an electronic message and misrepresenting herself that she would help him to verify, validate and authenticate his Instagram page with celebrities and other of his clients, which she did not do.

However, upon reading, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge against her.

Following her plea of not guilty, the prosecutor urged the court to remand the defendant to a correctional centre. But the defendant’s counsel, Elvis Asia, told the court that he would be praying to the court for bail.

Before adjourning the case till October 18 for further trial, the judge consequently remanded the defendant in the correctional centre pending when she is able to perfect her bail conditions.
