Olaniyan admitted before a Surulere Chief magistrates’ Court in Lagos that he stole the Samsung phone from Mr Godwin Enoch at 9a.m. on May 12 at Sari Iganmu, Lagos.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Christopher Okoliko, had told the court that the phone was valued at N18,000.

“The phone has been recovered from him,’’ Okoliko said.‎

He noted that the offence contravened Section 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr. A.A. Paul, will on May 22 review the facts of the case and sentence Olaniyan.

Paul ordered that the accused should be remanded in prison custody until then.
