A Tinubu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State on Wednesday remanded a 23-year-old security guard, Gabriel Undie, in prison after he pleaded guilty to stealing his employer’s N480,000.
The defendant, who is facing two counts of conspiracy and theft pleaded guilty to both counts.
However, the Magistrate, Mrs F.O. Ikobayo, ordered that the defendant be remanded in Ikoyi prison until Jan. 16, the next date of adjournment “for facts and sentence”.
The prosecutor, Insp. Richard Odigie, had earlier told the court that Undie committed the offences at about 11 p.m. on Nov. 26, 2016 at Akins Shopping Complex in Ajah area of Lagos State.
He said Undie conspired with two others to steal N480,000 from his employer, Innocent Abah, who reported the matter to the police.
Odigie said that the offences contravened sections 285 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
