A 28-year-old Bureau De Change operator, Musa Bukar, who allegedly stole and presented fake $5,000 to a customer, was on Tuesday arraigned at an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State

Bukar, whose address was not given, faces a two-count charge of stealing and unlawful possession of fake money.

The prosecutor, Inspector Ingobo Emby, told the court that the accused committed the alleged offences on December 16 at 1:30pm at Plot 42, Olabanji Olajide Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.

The prosecutor alleged that the accused obtained genuine $5,000 valued at N1.4 million from one Tony Emokpere, but subtly changed it to fake $5,000 and presented as original US currency to Emokpere.

He said that the offences contravened the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
The accused, who could face a maximum of seven years imprisonment as provided by Section 285 (7) if convicted, denied the charge.

The Magistrate, P. A. Balogun, granted him bail for N50,000 with two sureties.
Balogun adjourned the case to January 13, 2016 for mention.
