Seun Egbegbe

Alleged serial fraudster and filmmaker, Olajide Kazeem, popularly known as Seun Egbegbe, has being arraigned by the police at the Federal High Court in Lagos.

The suspect, for the third time, was re-arraigned with his alleged accomplice, Oyekan Ayomide. They were accused of defrauding scores of Bureau De Change operators in different operations involving N39,098,100, $90,000 and £12,550.

The duo had earlier been arraigned on two different occasions before Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo of the Federal High Court in Lagos on 40 counts.


Their re-arraignment for the third time yesterday followed the amendment of the charges by the police.

In the fresh amended charges, the police introduced the names of three other persons as defendants in the case.

The defendants, whose names were added to the charges are Lawal Kareem, Olalekan Yusuf and Muyideen Shoyombo.

The defendants were accused of swindling no fewer than 30 Bureau De Change operators in Lagos of various sums both in local and foreign currencies between 2015 and 2017.

The police alleged that the defendants defrauded the BDC operators mostly by falsely representing to the victims that they had foreign currencies to sell to or buy from the BDC operators.
