Teenager docked for allegedly stealing 7 yards of plain material

A teenager, Ahmed Musa, was on Wednesday docked in a Sharia Court in Kano for allegedly stealing seven yards of plain material worth N10,500.

The police charged Musa, who resides in Yakasai, Kano with criminal trespass and theft.

The Prosecution Counsel, Insp Abdul Wada, told the court that Babagana Burma of Danladi Nasidi Quarters, Kano, reported the matter at the Fagge Police Station, Kano on May 16.

Wada said that the defendant criminally trespassed into the complainant’s shop and stole seven yards of plain material worth N10, 500.

The prosecutor told the court that when the defendant was arrested, three and half yards of the cloth were recovered from him.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

He said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 120 and 131of the Sharia Penal Code.

The Judge, Ismai’l Muhammad-Ahmed, admitted the defendant to bail with one reliable surety who should be his relation.

Muhammed-Ahmed adjourned the matter until May 30, for summary trial.
