The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned a social media influencer Adedamola Adewale Rukayat a.k.a Adeherself before Justice Sherifat Solebo of the Special Offence Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos on one-count charge of possession of fraudulent documents.
EFCC Spokesperson, Dele Oyewwle, in a press statement on Monday in Abuja, said the defendant was arrested following intelligence received by the Commission on the activities of some young men allegedly involved in internet fraud in the Lekki axis of Lagos state.
Oyewale said she pleaded not guilty to the charge and in view of her plea, the Prosecution Counsel, S.O. Daji, asked the court for a trial date and also prayed that she be remanded in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS).
He said the defence counsel informed the court of a bail application for his client and also prayed for a short date to enable its hearing.
Justice Solebo adjourned the matter to July 13, 2020, for hearing of the bail application and also ordered the defendant to be remanded in EFCC custody.
