An Abuja Magistrate Court on Tuesday remanded an unemployed man, Danlami Isa, in Kuje Prison for stealing a pair of jean trousers valued at N3,000.
The magistrate, Okey Agu, remanded the accused after he pleaded guilty of committing the offence.
Mr. Agu therefore adjourned the case till February 20 for further hearing of the matter.
The prosecutor, John Ameh, a police inspector, told the court that the offence was committed on January 18 at shop 30 Banex Plaza, in the federal capital.
Mr. Ameh said the complainant, Ndubuisi Oko, was attending to some customers when the accused stole the trousers displayed outside the shop.
He explained that the value of the trousers was valued at N3000 and that the offence contravened the criminal laws of the Federal Capital Territory.
”He was almost going when someone from the other shop sighted him and ran after him,” Mr. Ameh said.
The accused lives at Life Camp Anguan Cement, a settlement behind Efab Estate, Abuja.
