Ibadan - A 35-year-old man, Ike Sunday,  was arraigned before an Ibadan Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting at Iyaganku on Monday for alleged fraud of N300, 000.

Ike was arraigned on a two-count charge of fraud and stealing.

The prosecutor, Insp  Adewale Amos,  told the court that Ike obtained and collected the sum from one Akunjinwa Kingsley of Oke Ado, Ibadan.

Chief Magistrate Fatima Badrudeen granted the accused bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Badrudeen said one of the sureties must be a landed property owner and the second  must have two years tax clearance certificate with means of  identification.
