Security guard in court for theft of phones, laptops


A 31-year old security man, Jimmy Ushie, who allegedly stole laptops, mobile phones and money from his company, on Friday appeared at an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court.

The accused, whose address is unknown, is being tried for burglary, stealing and causing damages.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Mike Unah, told the court that the offences were committed on Oct. 19 at 7, Seinde Calisto St., Oshodi, a suburb of Lagos.

Unah alleged that the accused burgled Tee By Link Security Company, where he worked.

‘‘The accused stole two laptops valued at N350,000, three mobile phones valued at N27,000, an MTN modem and N21,500 cash.

‘‘The accused also damaged keys valued at N29,500, CCTV cameras valued at N178,000 and POP ceiling valued at N25,500, property of Tee By Link Security company,’’ he told the court.

Unah also said that the accused was captured on the CCTV camera and handed over to the police.

The offences contravened the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Magistrate, Mrs A. O. Gbajumo, admitted him to bail for N200,000 with two sureties.

Gbajumo adjourned the case until Dec. 4 for mention.
