The trial of a movie producer, Seun Egbegbe

months in prison. Egbegbe was arrested in
February 2017 for allegedly trying to rip off an
unsuspecting Bureau de change operator of the
sum of 10 million naira while pretending to be
a medical doctor at Gbagada General hospital.

him before Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo on
February 2nd for alleged serial frauds involving

operators in Lagos over a period of two years –
2015 to 2017. He was arraigned alongside
Lawal Kareem, Olalekan Yusuf Muyideen,
Shoyombo and Oyekan Ayomide.
Egbegbe and his accomplices were each granted
N5m bail with two sureties in like sum. Justice
Oguntoyinbo while granting them bail, said one
of the sureties must be a civil servant on at
least Level 16 and must own a landed property
in Lagos State and that the Certificate of
Occupancy of the landed property must be
deposited in the custody of the court. Justice
Oguntoyinbo ordered that the defendants to be
remanded in the prison custody until they meet
the bail conditions.

custody, as he has not been able to meet the
bail conditions.
