An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Monday ordered that a house keeper be remanded in Kirikiri Correctional Centre for allegedly robbing his employer of 14,000 dollars (over N5 million)  at gunpoint, pending legal advice.

Chief Magistrate Yetunde Aje-Afunwa, who did not take the pleas of Ankwe and Obi , ordered the police to return the case file to the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice.

Aje-Afunwa adjourned the case until Aug. 10.

Earlier, the prosecutor, SP Raji Akeem told the court that Ankwe and Obi committed the offence on March 22, 2020 at 1, Austine Agbonlahor Close, Magodo, Lagos.

“They made away with his Samsung S10 andriod mobile phone ,valued at N120,000 and 14,000 U.S Dollar,” he said.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 297, 299 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
