The police on Friday arraigned a businesswoman, Hassana Dauda, in a Grade I Area court at Mpape in Abuja for allegedly damaging her tenant’s property worth N333, 800.
The police charged Dauda, 34, who resides in Gishiri village, Abuja with mischief.
The Prosecution Counsel, Mr J Nwafor told the court that the case was reported at the Mabushi Police station by Ms Anita Michael.
He alleged that on June 7, while the complainant was away, the defendant paid a carpenter to remove two roofing sheets and before she replaced them, it rained heavily.
Nwafor said that the rain destroyed the complainant’s property worth N333,800.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 327 of the Penal Code.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Judge, Salihu Ibrahim , admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N250, 000 with one reasonable surety in like sum.
He adjourned the case until July 15 for hearing. (NAN)
