The police in Lagos on Friday arraigned three men – Sunday Joseph, Kazeem Kareem and Moses Nworie – who allegedly stole eight inverter batteries worth  N1.4 million

Joseph, 31, Kareem, 27, and Nworie, 39, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing, before an Ikeja Chief Magistrate Court,

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Prosecutor, ASP Peter Nwangwu, told the court that the defendants committed the offences with some others still at large, on Nov. 14, on Adebayo Street, Ikorodu, Lagos.

Nwangwu said that Joseph and Kareem stole the inverter batteries belonging to America Tower Corporation, Nigeria, and sold them to Nworie.

“Nworie received the batteries, knowing that they were stolen,” the prosecutor said.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 287, 326 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Nigeria News Agency reports that Section 287 stipulates three years’ imprisonment for stealing.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Yewande Aje-Afunwa, granted the defendants bail in the sum of N350, 000 each with two  sureties each in like sum.

Aje-Afunwa adjourned the case until Jan. 8, 2020, for mention.
