Count one of the charge against Jesse reads: “Omokoh Orowo Jesse, Ifeanyi Oro (still at large), Emojewe (still at large) and David (still at large) sometime in 2012 at Ibadan within the Ibadan Judicial Division with intent to defraud conspired to obtain the sum of $70,000 from one Jette Jacobs, a 67-year-old Australian woman under the false pretense that the money represents payment for marriage engagement processes between you and her in Nigeria and which pretense you knew was false”.

Jesse pleaded not guilty to all nine charges read against him. The judge declined bail and Jesse was remanded at the Agodi Prison until July 10 2014 for the next hearing.
