Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos, has dismissed the bail application filed by a fake Army General, Bolarinwa Abiodun.
Abiodun is being prosecuted on a 13-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false pretense, forgery of documents, and possession of documents containing false pretense.
The Lagos Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) had, on April 11, 2022, arraigned the defendant on offences contrary to Section 1 (3) of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act 2006; Section 363 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015 and Section 6 of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Related Offences Act No 14 of 2006, respectively.
Justice Taiwo had, on April 14, heard his bail application, which was moved by his counsel, Kayode Lawal.
Counsel for the EFCC, Rotimi Oyedepo, however, opposed the bail application.
