Man, 28, in court over alleged car theft



Court Remands Butcher In Kirikiri For Defiling 17-Year-Old Boy

The Police on Thursday arraigned a 28-year-old man, Chinedu Victor in a Kubwa Grade 1 Area Court over alleged car theft.

The defendant of Zuba, Abuja, was docked over a charge of theft.

The prosecutor, Babajide Olanipekun, told the court that one Orshio Teraemen reported the matter at the Kubwa Police Station on September 14.

He said the defendant acted in a dubious manner and used a master key to open the complainant’s Toyota Corolla car valued N650, 000 on the said date.

He added that while the defendant attempted to move the said car, he was chased and arrested, and noted that the offence contravened Section 287 of the Penal Code.

The defendant pleaded not guilty.

The defence counsel, Moses Ugwummadu, made a bail application for his client pursuant to Sections 35 and 36 of the 1999 Constitution, as he urged the court to grant bail in the most liberal terms.‎

The prosecutor, however, opposed the bail request on the ground that the defendant had the likelihood of committing the same crime because he allegedly has a master key.‎

The judge, Abdulwahab Mohammed, granted the defendant N500, 000 bail with two reliable sureties of which one must be well known in the community.

He adjourned the matter until October 22 for hearing.
