According to him, the accused entered the same tricycle with the complainant, one Chioma Martins, who sat at the middle, but when she alighted, she discovered that her N13,500 cash had disappeared from her pocket.

“She shouted for help and the accused were apprehended immediately by passers-by.”

Their offences contravene Section 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

The section stipulates a three-year jail term for convicted offenders.

The Magistrate, Mrs G.O. Anifowoshe, admitted the accused to bail in the sum of N10, 000 with two sureties in like sum.
