FAKE HERBALISTS SCAM CLIENT OF N365,000
Magistrate Abimbola Famuyide refused to admit Ifaola Sikiru, 64 and Olasoji Sikiru, 25 and ordered that they should be remanded in Ile-Ife prison.
She adjourned the case until July 15 for mention.
Ona said that the defendants conspired and defrauded the complainant Okpanachi Mohammed of the N365, 000.
He said they obtained the money from the complainant and told him that they would help solve the spiritual problem he had, a representation they knew was false.
The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Defence Counsel, Mr J.A. Akindipe, prayed the court to admit his clients to bail in the most liberal terms.
He promised the court that his clients would not jump bail, but provide substantial sureties.
