The Department of State Services (DSS) has arraigned a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) before an Osun State Magistrate’s Court in Osogbo for alleged impersonation.
The prosecution alleges that Oluwatosin Medaiyese, 26, claimed to be a judge in a law court with the intention of fraudulently securing the posting of NYSC members to their desired places of primary assignment.
The charge read: “That you Oluwatosin Medaiyese ‘M’ on or before 30th January 2020 at Osogbo did falsely represent yourself as Hon. Justice Aliyu Jimoh to Emmanuel Attah, Southwest Zonal Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) with the intent of fraudulently securing the posting of Corps members to their desired places of primary assignment and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 108 of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol. II Laws of Osun State 2002.”
Mr Medaiyese has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Medaiyese’s lawyer, Omaniyi Abifarin, applied for bail for his client, saying he was currently on a one-year mandatory service with NYSC in Ilorin, Kwara State.
Magistrate Adebola Ajanaku granted him bail of N100,000 with one surety and adjourned the case to March 25 for hearing.
