An employee of Etisalat Nigeria  Ltd., Oyinade James, was on Monday charged with defrauding the company of N1.8 million at a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

The woman, 34, who resides at No. 47, Okesuna St., Lagos Island, is facing a charge of stealing. The prosecutor, Insp. Ignatius Okeke, told the court that the accused, a sales team leader with Etisalat, committed the offence sometime between April and May at the company’s office on Victoria Island.

Okeke said the accused, who was employed in 2009, allegedly gave out the company’s products to three dealers, but failed to remit the money appropriately.

``The dealers - Seaman Ventures, Telecomm Centre and Royal Serere - gave her N1.8 million for the products, but she failed to remit the money to the company.

``James claimed that she was `hypnotised’ by some unidentified men who took the money from her,” he said. Okeke noted that the offence contravened Section 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State. The section provides three years imprisonment for offenders.

The accused entered a not-guilty plea to the charge and was granted bail in the sum of N200, 000, with two sureties in like sum. The Magistrate, Mrs Y. R. Pinheiro, adjourned the case to July 12 for mention.
