A 35-year-old mechanic, Akintunde Iwayemi, on Friday, appeared before an Okitipupa Magistrates’ Court in Ondo State for allegedly stealing two goats, valued at N25,000.

The defendant, whose address was not given, is standing trial on a two-count charge of felony and stealing.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Zedekiah Orogbemi, told the court that the defendant, on Dec. 17 around 5:30 am. at Ayeka New Site in Okitipupa, conspired with one other now at large, to commit the act.

He said that the defendant stole the two goats, belonging to one Abass Aladeloye, where they were kept.

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Sections 516 and 390(9) Criminal Code Laws of Ondo State, 2006.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against him.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Musa Al-Yunus, admitted him to bail in the sum of N50,000, with a surety in like sum.

He said that the surety must show evidence of a year tax payment to Ondo State government, and adjourned the case till Jan. 30 for further hearing.
