Surety to lose N54m over son’s ‘escape’

An Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, Wednesday remanded a 60-year-old man, Amos Oyemade, for his alleged failure to produce his son, Sesan, whom he stood surety for.

The police said Oyemade entered a N54million bond to produce Sesan, who was standing trial for allegedly stealing N54m, but allowed his son to flee abroad.

Oyemade was arraigned Wednesday by the Zone 2 Police Division, Lagos before Mr B. A. Sonuga on a one-count charge marked F/12/2017 bordering on obstruction of justice.

Prosecuting Inspector Steven Molo said the defendant committed the alleged offence last May 11, at Lion Building Police Headquarters, Lagos Island, Lagos.

He said Oyemade promised the police that he would produce Sesan whenever needed, till the case was determined, but did not do so.

“The defendant failed to produce his son on May 12, 2016 and other subsequent dates, as was requested by the police. He allowed his son to travel outside the country,” Molo said.

He prayed the court to compel the defendant to should show cause why the bond of N54 million he entered, should not be forfeited to the Lagos State Government.

Molo said the offence contravened Section 140 of the Criminal Procedure Law, Laws of the Federation, 2003.

The defendant pleaded not guilty.

Magistrate Sonuga remanded him in prison custody and adjourned the case till April 14, for bail consideration.
