A 39-year-old trader, Evaristus Eze, charged with breaking into a shop to steal some goods, was on Monday arraigned in an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

According to the prosecutor, Insp. Essein Ndarake, the accused committed the offences at 6 a.m. on May 12 in Agege market, Lagos.

He said that the accused and one other, still at large, conspired to break into the shop of Mr Kehinde Kasali to steal his goods.

“The accused stole a steel pot, a set of big pots, a set of small pots, one big basin, small basin and 24 pieces of metal buckets, all valued at N170,000,” he said.
