Artisan Lands In Court For Stealing Recharge Cards Of All Networks

By - - [ ]

A 22-year-old artisan, Opeyemi Shomuyiwa, on Monday appeared before an Ogudu Magistrates’ Court, Lagos State, over alleged theft of a handbag containing two phones and N85,000 recharge cards of various networks.

Shomuyiwa, a resident of Shogbamu Street, Bariga, Lagos, is standing trial on a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing, to which he pleaded not guilty.

Police Prosecutor Lucky Ihiehie told the court that the accused stole a woman’s handbag containing the recharge cards, a Samsung phone valued at N 27,000 and an LG phone worth N45, 000.

He said that the handbag also contained N15,000.

Ihiehie submitted that the theft occurred on Nov. 8 at 6.05p.m. at 19, Church Street, Ifako, Gbagada, Lagos.

He said the handbag belonged to one Mrs Ajagbe Ayodele who reported the case at the Ifako Police Station, Lagos.

“On that day, the complainant was in her shop when the accused and one other, still at large, came pretending to buy bottles of water.

“Suddenly, one of them grabbed the complainant’s daughter – Abigail – and hit her on the face and snatched the bag she was holding which contains the said items.

“He then ran to catch up with the other who was on a waiting motorcycle but luck ran against them when a commercial driver, who had been watching them, knocked down their motorcycle as they were trying to escape.

“The accused, who was the motorcycle rider, was apprehended while the other, who snatched the bag containing the said valuables, made away with them”, Ihiehie told the court.

He noted that the offences contravened Section 287 (5) (A) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

NIGERIA NEWS reports that Section 287 stipulates a seven-year jail term for stealing, while Section 411 provides for two years’ imprisonment for conspiracy.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs E. Kubeinje admitted the accused to N50, 000 bail and two sureties in like sum.

She adjourned the case until Dec. 11 for mention.
