She pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to her.

In view of her plea, the prosecution sought to present his first witness, Orie, against the defendant.
Led in evidence by the prosecution counsel, S.O. Daji, the witness told the court that the bank received a letter from the Commission, asking for the statement of account as well as the account opening package of the defendant, which is sent to the Commission.

Consequently, the prosecution counsel sought to tender the documents, which were admitted in evidence by the court.

The case was adjourned to October 26, 2020, for the continuation of trial.
