A Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos, on Thursday, remanded a 29-year-old man, Yusuf Adebayo, in Ikoyi Correctional Centre, after pleading guilty to stealing two mobile phones, valued at N12,000.
The Chief Magistrate, Mr Tajudeen Elias, remanded Adebayo, pending the review of the facts of the two-count charge of stealing.
Elias adjourned the case till Dec. 19 for facts and sentence.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Edet Okoi, had earlier told the court that the defendant committed the offences on Nov. 29 at 1, Engineering Close, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Okoi said that the defendant stole a Tecno mobile phone belonging to Cardinal Security Service and another Itel mobile phone belonging to Mr Daniel Abada.
He said that the mobile phones were valued at N6000 each.
Okoi said that the defendant entered into the premises and stole the phones from a drawer at the security post.
“A security guard sighted the defendant at the parking lot, trying to force open one of the vehicles packed in the company’s premises and raised the alarm, and the defendant was subsequently caught,” the prosecutor said.
He said the offences contravened Section 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The Nigeria News Agency reports that Section 287 stipulates three years imprisonment for stealing.
