The police in Lagos State have arraigned a Point of Sale (PoS) operator, Abdulrafiu Issa before a Chief Magistrate’s Court sitting in Ikoyi on charges bordering on alleged conspiracy and stealing of N326.9 million.
The police, in a charge numbered Z/15/2023, claimed that Issa committed the alleged offences sometime in March this year in Lagos.
The police, through its prosecutor, Sunday Ayodele, had told the court that the defendant committed the alleged offences alongside Desmond Kasarachi and others, who are on the run.
Ayodele also told the court that the defendant received the money, fraudulently transferred to his bank accounts, from a financial institution known as E-Settlement Limited.
At the time of the defendant’s arrest, the police prosecutor stated that he had squandered the massive amount of N14 million.
He maintained that the offences committed by the defendant contravened sections 411 and 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 and were punishable under the same sections of the Law.
