Jobless man in court for stealing neighbours' food

A jobless and hungry man who stole food items from his neighbours has been arraigned in a court in Lagos.

An hungry man is an angry man

Daniel Noah, a 42-year old unemployed man, has been dragged to the Isolo Magistrates' Court sitting in Lagos State for allegedly breaking into the apartment of two of his neighbours to steal food items worth N20,000, PM News reports.

Noah, a resident of Mushin Road, Itire area of the state, told the police that he was driven by hunger to steal the food items which include a half bag of rice, groundnut oil, sugar, eggs, plantain chips, can malt drinks and others, belonging to Christian Offia and Emmanuel Orji.

It was gathered that Noah was caught after the owners of food started looking for them and wondered how those items disappeared from their apartments and another neighbour revealed that she saw Daniel when he went into their apartment but was not sure what he went to do there.

Daniel was interrogated and a search was conducted in his apartment where the food items were found there but he insisted that he bought the items but could not explain where he got the money to buy them from.

According to the neighbours, he claimed he borrowed money that morning because he had no job at present.

The matter was reported to the police at Itire division and he was charged to court for stealing under the Criminal code.
