A 23-year-old unemployed man, James Adavo, was on Monday released on a bail of N200,000 on the order of a Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State for allegedly stealing a phone valued at N140,000.

The Magistrate, Mr. Abiodun Etti, who gave the ruling, also gave the accused a surety, who must provide an evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The accused, whose address is unknown, was arraigned for stealing, an offence which contravenes Section 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

According to the prosecutor, Innocent Uko, the accused committed the offence on Oct. 17 at No. 27, Limca Road, Ibereko in Badagry.

The prosecutor alleged, “The accused stole a Samsung S6 phone, belonging to a woman, Miss Senyo Balogun. The woman was listening to music on her phone while walking along the road when the accused came and snatched the phone from her. As he was running away with the phone he was caught.”

The accused however pleaded not guilty and his lawyer, Mr. Akin Adewale urged the court to grant him bail on liberal terms, promising that he will not jump bail. The case was adjourned to November 17 for further hearing. (Independent)
