    Securityman, (27), Docked Over N358, 000 Theft in Lagos


    By Emmanuel Udom, Lagos   

    The police in Lagos on Tuesday dragged a security man to Surulere Chief Magistrate Court for allegedly stealing property valued at N353, 000.  

    Police prosecutor, Inspector Gabriel Ekundayo, told the court that the securityman, Yahaya Adamu, who is resident at No. 24, Tafawa Balewa Street Surulere, Lagos, allegedly committed the offence on February 13, this year.

    According to Ekundayo, the complainant, identified as   Ayo Akinwumi, a resident of No 31, Jebba Street, Ebute Meta, Lagos, reported the matter to the police.

    His words: One John, a staff of Orchard Hotel and Lodge, Lagos, now at large, allegedly connived with Adamu to steal the property, which comprises:  generator parts, turbo charger, oil pump, charging alternator, kick starter piston and con rod, all valued at N358, 000.

    However, Ekundayo told the court that Adamu confessed that he did not steal any of the mentioned property, except one condemned iron, valued at N2, 000.

    But, the police prosecutor argued that the offence contravened Section 285(7) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011, even as Mrs M.I. Dan-Oni, the Chief Magistrate of the court adjourned the case till March 7, this year for facts and sentencing.
