A 25-year-old man, Temitope Ebenezer, was on Thursday brought before an Ota Magistrates’ Court in Ogun, for allegedly stealing motorcycle valued at N220,000.
Ebenezer, of no fixed address, is facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.
The Prosecutor, Sgt. Chudu Gbesi, told the court that the accused and others still at large, committed the offences on Feb. 14, at Procom Hotel, Ilogbo, Ota.
Gbesi said that the accused and his accomplices conspired to steal a Bajaj Motorcycle with registration number DGB 402 WQ, valued at N220, 000 belonging to one Adewale Quadri.
The accused and his accomplices were caught by the security guards in the process of committing the offence and handed over them over to the police.
He said that the offences contravened Sections 390 (9) and 516 of Criminal Code Vol. 1, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Magistrate, Mr Sodunde Shotayo, granted the accused bail in the sum of N200, 000 with two sureties in like sum.
Shotayo ordered that the sureties should reside within the court’s jurisdiction and should show evidence of four years tax payment to Ogun Government.
