Security guard in court for allegedly stealing electronics


A 28-year-old security guard, Sulieman Mohammed, on Friday appeared in a Life Camp Magistrates’ Court for allegedly stealing electronics.

The police charged Mohammed of Mike Okonkwo street Gwarinpa, Abuja for housebreaking and theft.

The Police Prosecutor, ASP Peter Ejike, FCT Command Abuja, told the court that the complainant, Christian James of Mercury Street Gwarinpa, Abuja, reported the matter at the Gwarinpa Police Station on Sept.12.

The prosecutor alleged that on Sept.12 at about 1.30 a.m., the defendant acted in a dubious manner and dishonestly broke into Royal British International School, Gwarinpa where the complainant works.

Ejike alleged that the defendant stole several items including a 26-inch television and a set of home theater which value is yet to be known.

The offense, he said, contravened the provisions of section 353 and 288 of the Penal Code. The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Magistrate Chinyere Nwecheonwu admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N500, 000 and one surety in like sum.

Nwecheonwu ordered that the surety must be reliable and should live within the jurisdiction of the court.

She also ordered that he deposits a recent passport photograph and a valid means of identification which must be verified by the court registrar.

The magistrate, however, adjourned the matter until Nov.16 for hearing. (NAN)
