He is charged with three counts of false pretence, fraud and stealing.

Prosecuting Inspector Simon Uche told the court that the defendant allegedly committed the offence on November 1, 2019 in Lagos.

He alleged that the defendant presented himself as a lecturer from the University of Lagos to Lucky Ikeduba.
