A Kubwa Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Thursday remanded a 34-year-old businesswoman, Joy Abiodun, in police custody over alleged N13 million scam.
The judge, Mohammed Marafa, however, adjourned the case until April 20 for ruling on bail application.
The defendant of Wuse, Abuja, is facing a three-count charge of criminal breach of trust, cheating and forgery, offences she denied committing.
Prosecutor John Okpa, had told the court that the complainant, Orisha Saty, reported the case at the Kubwa Police Area Command on April 6.
He alleged that the defendant sometime in 2015, forged title document for a two-bedroom flat, and a self-contained apartment, located at Plot 09, Kubwa Annex, Abuja.
Mr. Okpa said the defendant swindled the complainant to the tune of N13 million with the said property, adding that after taking possession, it was discovered that the property was sold to one Abba Mohammed.
The prosecutor said all efforts made to recover the N13 million from the defendant failed.
The offences contravened Sections 312, 322 and 364 of the Penal Code.
