Miss Folake Fasanmi(pictured) was said to have fallen victim to them sometime in 2014.

The trio, Irene, 56; Awoyemi, 42; and Adelubi, 40, who appeared before a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court on a two-count charge of conspiracy, and obtaining money under false pretences, according to the prosecutor, Insp. Philip Osijiale, had in 2014 at Ajah on Lekki-Epe Expressway committed the offences.

Osijiale said the accused and others at large collected the money, the phone from Miss Fasanmi and fled the scene after they ordered their victim to go and buy chemical for the money doubling.

The prosecutor told the court that nemesis, however, caught up with them recently when Miss Fasanmi while on transit saw the accused and raised alarm.
His word, “Fasanmi did not see them again and the telephone number they gave her was inactive.

“She boarded a bus on March 21 and met the trio using the same strategy they used in defrauding her three years ago for other passengers on the bus.
“She recognised them and raised alarm which led to their arrest,” he told the court.

The offences contravened Sections 312 (1), (a), (2), 314 (b) and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015 (as amended).
