Popular social media influencer, Adedamola Adewale popularly known as Adeherself has been granted bail of N500,000 by an Ikeja Special Offences Court.

Since she was arraigned in court on July 7 for being in possession of fraudulent documents, Adeherself had been in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

EFCC counsel, Mr Samuel Daji, told the court that Adeherself was arrested following intelligence received by the EFCC on the activities of some young men allegedly involved in internet fraud in the Lekki axis of Lagos.

He said, “Adeherself on June 15, with the intent to defraud, had in her possession a fraudulent document which was entitled ‘WhatsApp’. The offence violates Sections 318 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011,” Daji added.

Justice Sherifat Solebo, in her ruling on Wednesday, granted the defendant N500,000 bail and ordered that she provides two sureties with reliable means of income which would be verified by the court.

Justice Solebo, therefore, adjourned the case until Aug. 5 for substantive hearing.
