    Nyong Lekki Garden boss to face trial for alleged theft

     Richard Nyong, managing director, Lekki Garden Estate Limited, Lagos south-west Nigeria is to face alleged theft trial alongside two others March 14.
    Idris Mohammed, the presiding judge says the adjournment became necessary due to the absence of the accused persons when the matter was mentioned Friday.
    Vicnuel recalls that the special fraud unit of the Nigeria police force in Ikoyi, Lagos last year slammed a three-count charge of conspiracy and stealing against Nyong before a federal high court in the state.
     Mrs. Amida Christiana and Mrs. Blessing Essien were the other two persons accused by the police.
    In the charge, Nyong and his accomplices were alleged to have on or about April 22, 2014, at Lekki Garden Estate Limited, located at Plot 1, Lekki Garden Estate road, Olokonla district, conspired among themselves to steal one HP Mini laptop 320GB,and seven pairs of ladies shoes, which are valued at N184, 500, 00.
    The accused persons were also alleged to have stolen the cash sum of N550, 300.00, and a cheque slip worth N502, 000, 00.
     Ezema Susan, police prosecutor told the court that the accused  without court order or any lawful excuse dispossessed one Eneh Excellence Nora of  Hyundi Accent saloon car marked: LSU 552 BR, which was the official car allocated to  Eneh, who is a former staff of the company.
    The said offences alleged to have been committed by the accused persons are contrary to sections 516, 383 and 388, and punishable under section 390(9) of the Criminal Code Act Cap C38, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria.
    The charge stated thus :”That you Mr. Richard Nyong of Lekki Garden Estate Limited, Mrs. Amida Christiana and Mrs. Blessing Essien, being Director and staff of Lekki Garden Estate Limited, and others at large, on or about April 19, 2014, at the Lekki Garden Estate Limited, Plot 1, Lekki Garden Estate road, Olokonla district, within the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court, with intent to commit felony, did steal the following items (a) 1 HP Mini Laptop 320GB valued N49, 500.00. (b) 7 pairs of ladies shoes valued N135, 000,00 (c) physical cash totaled N550, 300,00, (d) a cheque slip of N502, 000,00, property of Eneh Excellence Nora, and you thereby committed an offence contrary to section 383 of the Criminal Code Act Cap 38, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004, and punishable under section 390(9) of the same Act”.
    But, when the matter was mentioned December 12, 2016, none of the accused persons were present in court,, which compelled justice Mohammed to adjourn the case to Friday, February 3, and ordered that hearing notices should be issued to the accused persons.
