A 27-year-old man, Femi Olarenwaju, who allegedly stole an Infinity cell phone valued at N36,000 was on Monday charged before an Ota Magistrates ‘Court in Ogun.

Olarenwaju, whose address was not given, is facing a charge of stealing.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Chudu Gbesi, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Nov. 26, 2016 at about 2.00 p. m. at Lafenwa area, Ota, Ogun.

Gbesi said the accused stole the cell phone from the complainant, one Idowu Olawale, while he was about to board a commercial bus.

“The accused was seen by a passerby, who apprehended him and handed him over to the police,’’ he said.

Gbesi said the offence contravened Section 390(9) of the Criminal Law of Ogun, 2006.

The Senior Magistrate, Mr S. O.Banwo, granted him bail in the sum of N50, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

Banwo said the sureties should reside within the court’s jurisdiction and they should be gainfully employed.

He said the sureties should show evidence of tax payment to the Ogun State Government.

The case was adjourned until July 6, for hearing.
