The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan Zonal Office has arraigned one Oluwarore Omotomiwa Timileyin (a.k.a Stephen Kimble, Eldred Lola) on a seven-count charge bordering on forgery, obtaining under false pretence and possession of fake documents.
Oluwarore, who claimed to be a fashion designer, is standing trial before Justice P.I Ajoku of the Federal High Court 1, sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State.
The accused reportedly used different false representations online to defraud unsuspecting victims to the tune of thousands of United States Dollars.
Some of the charges, according to the charge sheet, are contrary to Section 1 (1) (a) and punishable under Section (1) (3) of the Advance Fee Fraud Act No. 14 of 2006.
Oluwarore, however, pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
Following the prosecution counsel’s prayer for a trial date on account of the accused person’s ‘not guilty’ plea, the court adjourned to May 27, 2019 for trial, and ordered that defendant be remanded in prison custody pending the determination of his case.
