THE police in Ado-Ekiti, on Friday, arraigned a 27-year-old sales representative, Daramola Temitope for allegedly defrauding his employer N1.2 million.

He said the defendant converted the money from the goods he sold to his personal use without the consent of the complainant.

The chief magistrate, Mr Abdulhamid Lawal, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.
Lawal, who said that the sureties must be civil servants, adjourned the case until Jan. 30 for mention. (NAN)
