An 18-year-old bus conductor, Emmanuel Iwede, was on Friday brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly stealing three mobile phones valued at N12,000.
The defendant, whose address was not stated, is being tried for damages, stealing and causing breach of peace.
The Prosecutor, ASP Clifford Ogu, told the court that the offences were committed on Nov. 21 at Ago-Owu area of Shogunle Oshodi in Lagos.
Ogu said that the defendant entered the compound of Mrs Esther Itabor at night, damaging a window net valued at N10, 000 and stole two Itel phones valued at N8,000.
The prosecutor also said that the defendant entered the apartment of Mr Francis Romanda and stole a Nokia phone valued at N4, 000.
Ogu said that the defendant was, however, caught while entering another apartment of Mr Sodiq Olaleye.
The offences, according to the prosecutor, contravened Sections 280, 308, 309 and 350 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Chief Magistrate, Mr J. A. Adegun, admitted the defendant to a bail of N100, 000 with two sureties in like sum.
Adegun, thereafter, adjourned the case until Dec. 27 for mention.
