Man, 22, docked over alleged theft of N2m property


Nnadi Michael 22, who allegedly stole property valued at N2 million belonging to Okechukwu Ezike, was on Friday docked before a Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court.

Michael, whose address was not stated, is facing a two-count charge of stealing and breach of peace.

The Prosecutor, ASP. Akpan Ikem, told the court that the accused committed the offences on Nov. 26 at Church Gate, Morogbo area of the state.

Ikem said that the accused stole three panels of plastic machines, one screw, three water pumping machines, some cables and hydraulic pump valued at N2 million, property of Okechukwu Ezike.

According to him, the accused also conducted himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace by instigating members of the public against the complainant, when he demanded to know the whereabouts of his missing property.

He said that the offence contravened Sections 285 and 166 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Chief Magistrate, Patrick Adekomaya, admitted the accused to bail of N100, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

Adekomaya adjourned the case until Jan. 14, 2019 for further hearing.
