Court remands man over theft of 2 sewing machines, clothes

A magistrates’ court in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, has ordered the remand of one Yashau Ibrahim (34) for stealing two sewing machines and clothes from a tailoring workshop valued at N144,000 and N132,000 respectively.

The prosecutor, Inspector Johnson Okunade, said the defendant was reasonably suspected to have committed the offence of burglary and theft from one Lamidi Fatima Hannah’s shop.

The victim, Hannah, after discovering the theft, raised alarm and that, “Someone around her shop told her that he saw his tenant with two sewing machines and that the two machines were still in the house.

“We got to the house and saw the sewing machines but the suspect was not around. We were still there when he came in, and when he saw us he took to his heels but was later arrested.”

The magistrate, Mrs Titilayo Ola-Olorun, ordered his remand pending legal advice from the DPP and adjourned the case to May 9.
