Police Arraign Two Artisans For Stealing Provisions Worth N300,000

Two artisans were on Friday docked in a chief magistrates’ court in Okitipupa, Ondo State, for allegedly stealing provisions worth N300,000.

The police charged Bayo Omowole, a mechanic and Tosin Owoetan, a tailor, with burglary and theft.

The police prosecutor, ASP Zedekiah Orogbemi, told the court that the defendants, at about 3:00 a.m. on May 27 at Halubu Street in Okitipupa, broke into a beverage store belonging to Comfort Joseph and stole provisions worth N300,000.

The prosecutor said the offence is punishable under sections 516 and 390 (9), Criminal Code, Cap.37, Vol. 1, Laws of Ondo State, 2006.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Chief Magistrate Chris Ojuola admitted the defendants to N100,000 bail and a surety each.

Mr Ojuola adjourned the case until September 15 for further hearing.
