The said offences alleged to have been committed by the accused persons are contrary to sections 516, 383 and 388, and punishable under section 390(9) of the Criminal Code Act Cap C38, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria.

The charge stated thus: “That you Mr. Richard Nyong of Lekki Garden Estate Limited, Mrs. Amida Christiana and Mrs. Blessing Essien, being Director and staff of Lekki Garden Estate Limited, and others at large, on or about April 19, 2014, at the Lekki Garden Estate Limited, Plot 1, Lekki Garden Estate road, Olokonla district, within the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court, with intent to commit felony, did steal the following items (a) 1 HP Mini Laptop 320GB valued N49, 500.00.
