The Police in Abuja on Wednesday arraigned a 31-year-old businesswoman before an Abuja Magistrate Court over an alleged N72, 000 fraud. 

The accused, Happiness Morka was charged with criminal breach of trust and cheating, offence contrary to sections 322 and 312 of the Penal Code.

The police prosecutor, Lukas Ephraim, told the court that one Rapheal Chinedu, reported at the Kubwa Police station, regarding how he entrusted his bar with different types of alcohol to the accused who was supposed to sell and remit the proceeds to him.

He said the accused, however, dishonestly converted the sum of N72, 000 to her personal use.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail in the sum of N10,000 by the judge, Mohammed Marafa with one reasonable surety who must be resident within the court jurisdiction.

The case was adjourned to August 20, 2015 for hearing.
