He said that the petitioner alleged that the documents were checked and confirmed by staff of the courier company, after which ₦26, 200 was paid as service charge. He said that the petitioner also alleged that the courier company guaranteed safe delivery of the parcel to the UK.
“However, it was later discovered that the parcel was never delivered. Thereby truncating all the academic dreams of the petitioner from progressing.

“A prima facie case of stealing has been established against the suspect, and other staff of the company.
“So the matter would be charged to court accordingly and the case will be heard in court in line with extant laws,” the ZPPRO said.
