The Police in Ogun State on Thursday arraigned two men, Ayobami Yusuf, 35, and Sunday Onasanya, 28, before Ota Magistrate Court for allegedly stealing 20 feet container valued N3 million belonging to their employer.
The accused persons, whose addresses were unknown, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Chudu Gbesi, told the court that the accused persons and others still at large, committed the offences on May 28 at about 12.30 p. m at Daraju Industries Limited, Ota, Ogun State.
Gbesi said that the accused persons and their accomplices were staff of Daraju Ltd. and conspired to steal the 20 feet container valued N3 million of their employer.
He said that the offences contravened Sections 390(9) and 516 of the Criminal Code Vol. 1, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
The accused persons, however, pleaded not guilty, and Senior Magistrate, Mr S. O. Banwo, granted them bail in the sum of N1 million each with two sureties each in like sum.
Banwo said that the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and swear to an affidavit of means.
He also said that the sureties should submit four recent passport photographs to the court and show evidence of tax payment to Ogun Government.
