Nigerian from London jailed in Barbados on fraud charges
A 31-year-old Nigerian promoter, who appeared in the District 'A' Magistrates' Court on fraud charges, was remanded to HMP Dodds.
David Alli-Oke of 60 Plaistow Lane, BR1 3JE, London, England, had the charges read to him on Saturday and was not required to plead. Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant remanded him until November 2 after the prosecution objected to bail and a bail application by his lawyer.
Those offences allege that he:
- dishonestly obtained 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.
- 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 were intended to commit criminal deception. He was not at his place of abode at the time.
Attorney-at-law Michael Lashley, QC, represented the accused.
