A Lawyer who allegedly forged a landed property document to defraud another man of N1 million, was arraigned on Thursday, by the Police in FCT, Abuja.
The Lawyer, Clifford Eze, has appeared before an FCT High Court at Apo on a six-count charge bordering on cheating, forgery, breach of trust and issuance of dud cheques.
The Prosecutor, Mr Patrick Ogbele, told the Court that Eze, and others at large, defrauded a Mr Asekun Adedoyin of N1 million on 16th April on the pretext of selling him a plot of land.
Ogbele, however, revealed that the land, situated at Jikwoyi, Abuja, did not belong to the Lawyer who forged a letter of Conveyance of Approval, Deed of Conveyance and Power of Attorney, and presented same to Mr Adedoyin as genuine.
Eze pleaded not guilty, and was granted bail in the sum of N300,000 with one surety in like sum.
The Judge, Justice Abubakar Idris-Kutigi, said that the surety must be a Civil Servant of Grade Level 8 or above.
The case was adjourned until 14th November for substantive hearing.
