Man Risks Jail Over Alleged Generator Theft
How much can a used I pass my neighbour generator possibly be worth?
Why would anyone risk going to jail for that?
That is exactly what 18-year-old man, Badmus Quadri has done to himself.
He was arraigned in an Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun over housebreaking and theft of Tiger generator valued at N10,000.
Quadri, who live at No. 18 Ademola Street, Iyana-Ilogbo, Ota, is facing two-count charge of stealing and burglary.
The Prosecutor, Cpl. Abdulkareem Mustapha, told the court that the defendant committed the offences on December 4 at about 8 a.m. At Ouse Village, Ota.
Mustapha said that the defendant unlawfully broke into the house of Joshua Babalola and stole a Tiger generator valued at N10,000.
The offences contravened sections 390(9) and 411(1)(2) of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge and the Chief Magistrate, Mrs B. B. Adebowale, granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.
She said that the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and must swear to an affidavit of means.
Adebowale also ordered that the sureties should show evidence of tax payment to Ogun Government and submit four recent passport photographs to the court.
She then adjourned the case until January 11, 2018 for hearing.FOR MORE FRESH STORIES, DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
