5

An Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court has ordered remand of a 33-year-old man, Baderinwa Waheed, who allegedly stole an N-Power beneficiary’s five months stipend.

The defendant, whose address was not provided, is charged with forgery, stealing and fraud.

According to the  prosecutor, Mr Olaolu Olayinka,  the defendant committed the offences sometime in March 2021 in Ado-Ekiti.

Olayinka alleged that the defendant conspired with one Tiamiyu Salimot to commit a computer-related forgery and log into one Adeola Olofin’s N-POWER dashboard  to defraud her.

He alleged that the defendant and Salimot changed Olofin’s password, name and account number, thereby causing her  to lose five months’ N-POWER stipend calculated at N150,000.

The prosecutor said that the victim’s phone developed a fault as she  forwarded her N-POWER log in details to the defendant to help her check for messages.

He said that the defendant told the victim that there was no message.

According to him, the victim later discovered that the defendant hacked her account and diverted her details to his wife and collected Olofin’s stipends for five months.

Olayinka said that the offences contravened Section 14(1), (2) and (3) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition Prevention) Act, 2015.

The plea of the defendant was not taken.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Bankole Oluwasanmi, ordered his remand pending advice from the office of the state  director of public prosecutions.

He adjourned the case until June 20 for mention. (NAN)

    The next time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might fix when you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
