A lady, identified as Mary Egodo, has been accused of swindling her fiancé of N10million and eloping with another man.
The 30-year-old lady was arraigned before the Ejigbo Magistrate Court, Lagos State, for allegedly defrauding her abroad-based fiancé, Ogunshakin Emmanuel.
Upon retuning to Nigeria to perform their marriage rites, Emmanuel discovered that his fiancée has swindled him and absconded with her new lover.
It was gathered that he couldn’t contact her on every platform as she had blocked him and relocated to an unknown place.
The heartbroken fiancé reported to the police, who trailed and eventually arrested Mary in her hideout. When she was asked to refund the money, she said without mincing words that she had spent it all.
When dragged to court, she was charged with fraud and conversion of the money, which she pleaded not guilty to. The prosecutor, Inspector Bernard Aigbokhan, asked the Court to give a date for hearing for the Police to prove that she actually committed the alleged offence.
She was eventually granted bail in the sum of N3m with two sureties in like sum and the case was adjourned till 19th April, 2021.
Mary is currently in Kirikiri correctional center, pending when she meets her bail condition.
