Car park operator docked for alleged negligent conduct



The police on Tuesday arraigned a 45-year-old car park operator, Prince Joseph, in a Mpape Upper Area Court, Abuja, for alleged negligent conduct.

The police charged Joseph who resides in Mashafa Road, Mpape, with negligent conduct.

The prosecutor, Edwin Ochayi, told the court that Mr Fadayomi Eniola, of Berger Quary Mpape, reported the matter at the Mpape Police Station on May 8.

Ochayi said the complainant alleged that on May 6, his Toyota Camry battery and N3,500 fuel was stolen from a car park, operated by the defendant.

He said the defendant failed to employ a security guard to watch over cars in the parking space.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 196 of the Penal Code.

After the charge was read to him, Joseph pleaded not guilty.

The judge, Hassan Mohammed, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N50, 000 with one surety in like sum.

Mohammed ordered that the surety must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

He adjourned the case until June 21, for further hearing.
