The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has urged an Ikeja Special Offences Court to deny bail to popular social media influencer, Adedamola Adewale, popularly known as Adeherself.

KanyiDaily had reported that Adeherself was arrested earlier this month following intelligence received by the EFCC on the activities of some young men allegedly involved in internet fraud in the Lekki axis of Lagos.

The anyi-graft agency said Adewale had on June 15, with the intent to defraud, had in her possession a fraudulent document entitled “WhatsApp.”

According to the EFCC, the offence violates Section 318 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.”

The defence counsel, Mr Tunde Salami, had applied to the court to grant bail on liberal terms to Adewale who had been remanded in EFCC’s custody since July 7, 2020.

However, the lead prosecuting counsel for the EFCC, Mr Samuel Daji opposed the bail on Monday, July 13, during Adewale’s bail hearing on a charge of possession of fraudulent documents.

“I urge the court to refuse the bail of the defendant and order accelerated hearing,”Daji said.

Following the submissions of the defence and prosecuting counsel, Justice Sherifat Solebo, adjourned the case till Wednesday for ruling on the bail application.

KanyiDaily had also reported how the EFCC arrested a 30-year-old Nigerian billionaire identified as John Ani Chukwuebuka for his alleged involvement in Business email compromise fraud.
