50-year-old woman arraigned over alleged theft of laptop, TV

A 50-year-old woman, Bukola Awolu, has appeared before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates' Court, Lagos, for allegedly breaking into an apartment and stealing valuables including a laptop valued at N168, 000.

Awolu, a trader, who resides in Oyo State, is facing a two-count charge of stealing and break-in.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Feddy Asu, told the court that the offences were committed on Feb. 26 at No. 36, Niger St., off Odaliki Street, Ebute Meta.

Asu alleged that the woman broke into the apartment of one Mr Rasaki Obafemi and made away with an LG flat screen TV and a laptop all valued at N168, 000.

He noted that the offences contravened Sections 285 and 305(b) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 285 prescribes three years imprisonment for stealing, while Section 305 (b) provides seven years for housebreaking.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

In his ruling, the Magistrate, Mr E.O. Ogunkanmi, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50, 000 with two responsible sureties in like sum and adjourned the case to July 30 for mention.
