The charge reads: “That you Momojimoh Abdulmalik while being a cashier in First Bank Plc, Owo Branch, between January to July 2018 in Owo, Ondo State within the jurisdiction of this honourable court did fraudulently withdraw the aggregate sum of N6, 963,929.61 only from Ondo State Revenue collection account domicile at First Bank Plc, Owo Branch, thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 390(6) of the Criminal Code Act CAP C38 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004”.

Penpushing further reports that, in view of his plea, the prosecuting counsel, Immaculate Elody, prayed the court to fix a date for trial, while  defence counsel, Idedayo Olanipekun, however, informed the court that he had filed an application for bail before the court.

The defence lawyer pleaded with the court to grant his client bail as he was a first time offender and has been granted administrative bail by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Penpushing also reports that, Justice Abdu Dogo after listening to both counsel, adjourned to January 17, 2019 for “ruling on bail application” and ordered that the defendant be remanded in prison custody.
