Ikorodu    –     An Ikorodu Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Friday granted a 52-year-old estate agent N100,000 bail in a case of obtaining N150,000 under false pretences.

Chief Magistrate E. O. Ogunkanmi also ordered the applicant, Agge Akhigbe, to produce two sureties in like sum.

Akhigbe, whose address was not given, is facing a two-count charge of fraud and obtaining money under false pretences.

The case has been adjourned until Nov. 15 for mention.
