The defendants, Omotosho Abiodun, 18 and Oladiti Abeeb, 23, whose addresses were not provided, are facing a two-count charge of stealing and burglary.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Chudu Gbesi, told the court that the defendants and others still at large, committed the offences on March 4, about 2.30 a.m. at No. 3, Anuoluwapo St., Ijoko, Ota.

Gbesi said that the defendants conspired to break into the house of the complainant, Michael Oloyede, to steal some laptops valued at N150,000, and a cash of N100,000, all valued at N250,000.

The offences contravened Sections 390 (9) and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun 2006.

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Magistrate, Mr S. S. Shotayo, granted them bail in the sum of N300,000 each with two sureties each in like sum.

He said that the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and must show evidence of three years tax payment to Ogun Government.

The case was adjourned until March 26 for further hearing.
