Court arraigns couple for fraud

A Lagos State Mag­istrate Court yes­terday arraigned a couple and one other for allegedly using a forged document to defraud a Lagos-based hotel.
The couple, John Onah, 37, and Evelyn Onah, 38 were arraigned alongside their friend, Simon Achanya, 40, on a five-count charge bor­dering on conspiracy, fraud, forgery, malicious damage, and stealing.
The prosecutor, Sgt Innocent Odugbu, told the court that the ac­cused committed the al­leged offences between January and March 2016, at Plot 5, Acme Road, Off Lateef Jakan­de Road, Agindingbi, Ikeja, Lagos.
Odugbu, said the ac­cused got a proposal to manage a Lagos-based hotel, Cozy World Ho­tels Ltd, Ikeja, under false pretences.
He said that they forged documents with an unregistered com­pany’s name, Global Reach Ltd to gain access to manage the said hotel.
“The name of the company which the de­fendants submitted to enable them manage Cozy World Hotel was not registered by the Corporate Affairs Com­mission,” Odugbu said.
