Indian man indicted in Nigeria for swindling
A court in Nigeria indicted an Indian man for swindling a Nigerian man of six million Nigerian naira (around USD 36,324).
Thakkar Mitulkkma was charged with two counts of criminal breach of trust and cheating in the Karu Senior Magistrates' Court in Nigeria's capital Abuja Thursday, the Nigerian Bulletin reported.
Prosecutor Atteh Effiong told the court that Adigwe Lawrence, owner of an electronics shop, De-law Technology Computer Limited in the city, gave the accused the sum to supply laptops and some electronics but he never supplied them.
Effiong said the victim tried his best to recover the money without any success.
If the accused is convicted, he faces eight years in prison or an option to pay a fine or both.
Mitulkkma, however, pleaded not guilty.
Senior magistrate Bashir Alkali agreed to grant him bail against 500,000 Nigerian naira and two sureties.
One of the sureties must be a federal civil servant in Nigeria and the other from the Indian embassy.
Alkali adjourned the case till March 19.
