The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) has urged an Ikeja Special Offences Court to refuse the bail of Adeherself, a popular social media influencer whose real name is Adedamola.
The lead prosecuting counsel for the EFCC, Mr. Samuel Daji, made the plea on Monday, 13th of July, during Adewale’s bail hearing on a charge of possession of fraudulent documents.
“I urge the court to refuse the bail of the defendant and order accelerated hearing,”.
Mr Tunde Salami, the defence counsel had applied to the court to grant bail on liberal terms to Adewale who had been remanded in EFCC’s custody since the 7th of July earlier before the bail hearing.
The Case was however adjourned till Wednesday, 15th of July by Justice Sherifat Solebo.
Adeherself was arrested last month following intelligence received by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission on the activities of some young men allegedly involved in internet fraud in the Lekki axis of Lagos State.
She was convicted on a one-count charge of possession of fraudulent documents.
