Man in court over alleged theft

A 34-year-old dispatch rider, Rotanna Ofoma, on Monday appeared before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court over alleged stealing of his employer’s N116, 000.

NAN reports that Ofoma, a resident of No. 69 Giwa St., Aboru in Iyana-Ipaja, is facing a theft charge.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the offence.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Sunkanmi Adejumo said that the defendant stole N116, 000 from the complainant, one Mrs IleriOluwa Adegunloye.

Adejumo told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Sept. 9 at 10.00am at No. 331B Gowon Estate, Egbeda, Lagos.

The prosecutor said that the complainant gave a motorcycle to the defendant for a delivery business with an agreement to remit the said amount to her.

“The defendant converted the money to his personal use, and all efforts made by the complainant to retrieve the money from the defendant proved abortive,” the prosecutor said.

The Magistrate, Mrs O. A. Teluwo, admitted the defendant to N50, 000 bail with two sureties in like sum.
