DJ in court over alleged theft, granted N50,000 bail

A Gudu Upper Court has granted a thieving DJ bail in the sum of N50, 000 for stealing a turntable.

Then I thought that I'd upgrade my existing Bluetooth setup, simply by buying one of the best Bluetooth speakers out there — one that I could also plug a turntable into at some point.

The judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, who granted the bail, ordered that the defendant must also produce one surety that must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

He adjourned the case till May 8 for hearing.

The defendant of Waru village, Abuja, was arraigned on a count charge of theft by servant, an offence he denied committing.
