One Abiodun Adeyemi Faseyitan has appeared before Hon. Justice M. Abimbola, Chief Judge of Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan, after been charged by EFCC on a 6-count of obtaining money under false pretense.
The journey to the dock for the defendant followed a petition to the Commission from one pastor and founder of a new generation church alleging that sometimes in 2013 the defendant, approached her and presented himself as a senior staff of EFCC.
According to the petition, Faseyitan promised to assist members of her congregation to secure Federal Government jobs, purchase vehicles that are on auction sale in the EFCC and also use his connection in the Commission to assist them to travel abroad. .
It was further alleged that based on the above promises, the defendant fraudulently collected the sum of N2,477,500 from her and several millions of Naira from members of her church. .
When they discovered he was not genuine, they made efforts to recover their monies back but seemed abortive. The defendant however, pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against him.
Justice Abimbola however, ordered the defendant to be remanded at the Federal Prison, Agodi, pending the hearing and determination of his bail application. The case is adjourned to 7 September, 2018 for trial.
