A man, Bashiru Olajuwon, on Wednesday appeared in a Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State charged with stealing a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 phone valued at N150, 000.
The 23-year-old is facing a two-count charge of stealing and breach of peace.
According to the Prosecutor, ASP Ikem Akpan, the accused, whose address was undisclosed, committed the offence on Sept. 21 at 7:30p.m. along Agbalata International Market, adjacent to Union Bank, Badagry.
