The duo is facing a three-count charge of a joint act, criminal breach of trust and cheating.

The prosecutor, Asa Oyeyemi, told the court that one Abuh Danjuma of Mararaba, Abuja, reported the case at the Wuse Police Station on November 1

Oyeyemi, said that the complainant reported the case on behalf of his brother, Francis Okolie, who is in New York, U.S.

He said Okolie on Oct. 26 deposited 18,000 U.S. dollars(N17.3million) into the account of the defendants’ bureau de change to convert the money to Naira equivalent and deposit it into his bank account in Nigeria.

The defendants, he said, failed to deposit the money and rather converted it to their personal use.

The prosecutor said that the offences contravened sections 79, 312 and 322 of the Penal Code.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges levelled against them.

Chief Magistrate Mohammed Tahir, who granted the duo bail, ordered them to produce a reasonable surety each.

Tahir also ordered that both sureties must be civil servants within the jurisdiction of the court and adjourned till January 10 for hearing.
