A Nigerian man who resides in England is currently on remand at HMP Dodds on several fraud charges.
David Alli-Oke, of 60 Plaistow Lane, BR1 3JE, London, England, is charged with dishonestly obtaining a $19,655 watch from Nimsay Trading Company Limited on October 3 with intent to permanently deprive the company by falsely representing that a NatWest Visa Debit Card bearing the name RE Willis was a good and valid form of payment and he was authorized to use it.
It is further alleged that the 31-year-old promoter, not being at his place of abode, had with him two Nationwide Visa Debit Cards, a Santander MasterCard, a Santander Visa Debit Card, a Tesco Bank MasterCard, a Lloyds Bank of American Express card, a Lloyds Bank MasterCard and a Lloyds Bank Visa debit Card, bearing different names which was intended to commit criminal deception.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charges when he appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant on Saturday.
Prosecutor Acting Station Sergeant Cameron Gibbons objected to bail on several grounds while Alli-Oke’s attorney Michael Lashley, QC, put forward several arguments why the accused should be released until the matter is adjudicated.
The magistrate, after weighing the submissions, ruled in favour of the prosecution and remanded Alli-Oke to HMP Dodds until November 2.
