An Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun, on Friday, remanded a 26-year-old man, Afeez Alabede, in Abeokuta Correctional Centre for stealing goods valued at N1,710.

Alabede, who is of no fixed address, was arraigned on a charge of stealing, to which he, however, pleaded guilty.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Busarat Sulimon, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Dec. 12, at about 7.30 am., at No. 4, Salvation Street, Ota, Ogun.

She said that the defendant unlawfully entered the shop of the complainant, Oketunji Olajumoke, and stole three tins of crown milk, three tins of sardine, four sachets of Holandia milk, all valued at N1,580 and a cash of N130.

“The accused was caught by the neighbours and handed over to the police,” the prosecutor said.

According to her, the offence contravenes Section 390(9) of the Criminal Code, Law of Ogun, 2006.

The Magistrate, Mrs O. M. Awosanya, said that the defendant should be remanded in the Abeokuta Correctional Centre and adjourned the case till Jan. 8, for facts and sentencing.
