Simeon Samson, a 43-year-old man, has been dragged to court

The man, who allegedly spent fake currency, was on Tuesday arraigned in an Ota Magistrate Court in Ogun State.

The police charged Samson, whose address was not provided, with theft and spending fake currency.

The Police Prosecutor, Insp. E. O. Adaraloye, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on November 1, at about 1:15 am at Triple 9 Hotel, Onipanu, Ota.

Adaraloye alleged that the defendant gave the fake currency to one Adeosun Oluwatosin.

He said that the offence contravened sections 249(D) and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Magistrate, Mrs O. A. Adeyemi, admitted the defendant to N200,000 bail, with one surety in like sum.

Adeyemi ordered that the surety, who must be gainfully employed with evidence of tax payment to Ogun State Government, must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

She adjourned the case until December 19, for further hearing.
