An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court, which gave the ruling, asked the accused to produce two sureties as part of the bail condition.

The Magistrate, Mr A . Adigun, said the sureties must be gainfully employed and should show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

According to the prosecutor, Sgt. Emmaunel Ajayi, the accused committed the offences on May 18, at Ojokoro, Abule-Egba, Lagos.

“A man at the park who saw him raised alarm, and the accused was chased and apprehended, while his accomplice escaped.

“The tricycle was recovered,” he said.
