A self-styled alfa, 45-year-old Adeleke Isiaka, is facing trial at a Federal High Court, Lagos, for allegedly collecting 50, 000 Dollars (N8.5 million) from a man on the pretext of praying on the money for a sudden
business boom.

The accused is charged with a three-count offence of conspiracy, obtaining money by false pretences and stealing.

He, however, denied the charge.

The Police Prosecutor, Mr Sylvester Azubuike of the Special Fraud Unit, Lagos, told the court that the accused committed the offences sometime in March 2013 at Abdul Oladejo Avenue, Mokore Town, Wawa off Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

He alleged that the accused obtained the sum of 50,000 Dollars ( N8.5 million) from the complainant, Mr Ismail Abdul to offer special prayers for Allah’s blessings on the money to enable the complainant to purchase two trucks and for his business to be free from all spiritual problems.

“The accused bolted with the money after collecting it.”

The offences contravened Sections 1(1), (a), and 8(a) of the Advanced Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act, Laws of the Federation, 2008 and Sections 390 (d) of the Criminal Code, Laws of the Federation 2004.

Justice Muslim Hassan granted the accused bail in the sum of N1 million with one surety in like sum and that the surety must provide three years tax clearance.

He ordered that the accused should be remanded in prison pending when the bail conditions would be satisfied.

Trial has been fixed for Sept. 15.
