Three female sales representatives and an accountant, yesterday, appeared in a Yaba chief magistrate’s court, Lagos, charged with defrauding their employer of N85 million.
The accused, all residents of Mushin in Lagos are Juliana Enwerem, 45; Prisca Alisi, 34; Priscilla Obinna, 32; and the accountant, Gibson Okene, 58.
They pleaded not guilty to a four-count charge bordering on conspiracy, breach of peace and stealing.
The prosecutor, Inspector Romanus Unuigbe, told the court that the accused committed the offences between 2013 and May 2014 at 4, Palm Avenue, Mushin.
He said the accused, workers of Full of Grace Global Services, conspired and sold plywood valued at N85 million and converted the money to personal use.
Unuigbe also said the first accused (Enwerem) conducted herself in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace when she was caught issuing receipts at a lower price after she sold them at a higher price.
He alleged that the second accused (Alisi) had started selling plywoods at 111, Palm Avenue, Mushin, with the proceeds from the company’s goods.
Chief Magistrate P. A. Ojo granted each N500,000 bail with two sureties, each, in like sum.
He said the sureties must be blood relations of the accused from the father’s side and should produce evidence of three years tax payment to Lagos State Government.
Substantive trial has been fixed for July 26.
