Mr Adegoke said the defendant, being a sales representative, fraudulently converted the proceed from the sale of bread belonging to one Makinde Oluseyi, who employed him.

He said the offence contravened sections 390 (9)(6) of the criminal code cap 34 vol.11, laws of Osun, 2022.

The defence counsel, Ifeoluwa Ayodeji, prayed the court to grant his client bail in the most liberal terms.

The magistrate, A. Ajala, overruled the bail application by the defence counsel due to the magnitude of the alleged offence.

The case was adjourned to December 20 for a hearing.
