4 Sanusi told the court that the defendant committed the offences at various times on May 30, 2015, April 4, 2018, May 2, 2018 and May 2019 at Honeywell Flower Mill Ltd in Ikeja.

5 She said the defendant, who was a former human resource officer in a recruiting firm, NL Outsourcing Ltd, stole the sum of N1.32 million from the complainants after failing to get them jobs at Honeywell Flower Mill Ltd.

9 The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Emeka Opara, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N400,000 with two sureties in like sum.

10 Opara ordered that the sureties must be gainfully employed and should show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government as part of the bail conditions.
