Akinsola, whose address was not given, is facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.

The prosecutor, ASP. Richard Odigie, told the court that the accused committed the offences with one other suspect at large, on April 18 at a Cell Phone Shop in Marina, Lagos.

Odigie also said the accused stole the cell phone from the shop of one Mr Jackson Iwuenome, when he and the suspect thought no one was watching them.

“Unknown to them; they had been captured on the Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV).

“Akinsola was caught by the sales representative, when he went back to the shop the next,” he said.

The offences contravened Sections 287 (d) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

Section 287 stipulates a three-year jail term for offenders but the accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Magistrate, Mrs F. O. Ikobayo, granted the accused bail in the sum of N50, 000 with two sureties in like sum and adjourned the case until May 19 for mention.
