An Ilorin Magistrate’s Court, on Thursday, remanded a 27-year-old man, Akomode Isaac, in a Correctional Centre for alleged house breaking.

The Magistrate, Mrs Jumoke Bamigboye, remanded the defendant, who is facing a three-count charge of trespass, house breaking and theft.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp. Sanni Abdullahi, had told the court that on Nov. 27, the case was reported through a petition received at the Area Commander’s office in Ilorin from one Omeiza Abogunde.

Abdullahi said that on Nov. 26, the complainant saw the defendant in her house around 9.00 pm., armed with hammer which he used to break into her house.

He said that the defendant also attempted to use the same hammer on the complainant.

The prosecutor said that during interrogation, the defendant confessed to breaking into the complainant’s house with the same hammer before he was caught.

Abdullahi said that investigation conducted revealed that Isaac was a habitual criminal, who had earlier been arrested and charged to court for similar offences.

He said that the offences were contrary to Sections 348, 355, and 288 of the Penal Code.

The accused person, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Bamigboye adjourned the case till Dec. 10, for further mention.
