Man arraigned for forging Tinubu Estate documents

The police on Thursday accused a 57-year-old man, Akanji Eshinlokun, of forgery, fraud and falsely parading himself as a Trustee in the Estate of Madam Iyalode Tinubu of Lagos.
Eshinlokun, also known as “Alfa Inshau Allahu,” of No. 28, Olorunshogo Street, Mushin, Lagos, was arraigned before Mr. W. B. Balogun of an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
He is standing trial on a four-count charge of conspiracy, forgery, fraud and giving information to the police which caused the prosecution of “two innocent persons.”
Prosecuting Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Henry Obiazi, alleged that sometime in August 2014, at Mushin, the defendant and others at large conspired and forged a Power of Attorney “with intent that it may in anyway be used or acted upon as genuine to the prejudice of another.”
He added: “On August 11, 2014 at Zonal Police Headquarters, Onikan, Lagos, the defendant did conspire to cause one Akindele Afolabi and Alhaji Adio Kazeem to be charged with offences knowing that both persons were innocent of the alleged offences.
“In the same month in the Mushin area, Eshinlokun, with intent to defraud people, falsely represented himself to be a trustee in the estate of Madam Iyalode Tinubu.”
The offences, the prosecutor said, contravened Sections 94, 363(3)(m), 378(1) and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
The defendant denied the charges.
Magistrate Balogun granted Eshinlokun bail in the sum of N500,000 and two sureties.
He adjourned the case till June 28 for mention.
