A woman and two men were on Thursday arraigned before an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly withdrawing N7.6 million with forged bank documents.
The accused, Alice Ogar, 30, who resides at Alamola St., Iwo Road, Ibadan in Oyo State, is charged along with Samuel Ashanwa, 47; and James Okolo, 49, of no fixed addresses.
They are standing trial on a four-count charge of conspiracy, fraud, and forgery and stealing.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Raphael Donny, told the court that the accused committed the alleged offences on Dec. 2 at Union Bank of Nigeria premises, Lagos, in the Lagos magisterial district.
Donny told the court that Ogar conspired with the other accused persons to forge the bank documents of one Miss Augusta Nwachukwu and fraudulently withdrew N7.6 million belonging to her without her consent.
He said the act was uncovered when the management of the bank audited its account.
The prosecutor said that the offences contravened Sections 285,384, 387 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Magistrate, Miss Alli Balogun, admitted the accused to bail in the sum of N500,000 each, with two sureties each in like sum.
Balogun adjourned the case till Jan. 15, for mention. (NAN)
