Social media influencer, Adedamola Adewale (alias Adeherself), has been granted bail to the tune of N500,000 by an Ikeja Special Offences Court on Wednesday.
In a ruling on Wednesday, July 15, Justice Sherifat Solebo also ordered that Adewale must provide two sureties with reliable means of income which would be verified by the court.
Solebo adjourned the case until Aug. 5 for substantive hearing.
The defendant, who had been in the custody of the EFCC following her arraignment in court on July 7, is facing a charge of possession of fraudulent documents.
She was charged with fraud by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
According to EFCC counsel, Samuel Daji, the defendant was arrested following intelligence received by the EFCC on the activities of some young men allegedly involved in internet fraud in the Lekki axis of Lagos.
“Adeherself on June 15, with the intent to defraud, had in her possession a fraudulent document which was entitled ‘WhatsApp’.
“The offence violates Sections 318 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011,” Mr Daji said.
