The suspect however pleaded not guilty to the charge and was remanded in police custody. Chief Magistrate Olatunbosun, subsequently, adjourned further hearing to July 25, 2022,.

Speaking after the proceeding, Adeyemo said Gbajabiamila has been using the name of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila to defraud several persons and had been at large for months before he was arrested.

He said: “I got to know him through two men and I started sending money to him. He even showed us keys to the house and pictures and I never suspected him initially.

“I realised he had defrauded me when he stopped picking our calls in January 2022. The guys that introduced him asked me not to worry because his brother is the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

“I never knew he was a thief. He made a fake draft when I asked him to return my money and said he’s paid the money.

“The total money is N31 million because they collected N1 million as commission, but it is not included.”
