An Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court sitting on Monday remanded two men in prison over alleged theft of
N350,000 gold necklace and receiving stolen item.

The accused — Tunde Balogun, 23, and Isiaka Mukiala, 40 — are facing a two-count charge of stealing and receiving stolen property.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the first accused (Balogun) pleaded not guilty while the plea of the second accused was not taken because he claimed he did not understand English Language except Hausa.

Magistrate Victoria Williams remanded them in prison pending when an interpreter would be available for the second accused.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Olakunle Shonibare, told the court that the accused committed the offences on Oct. 2 at 2.00p.m. at Elega area of Abeokuta.

Shonibare said the first accused, Balogun, stole a gold necklace valued at N350,000, property of his employer, Mr Oluwole Olumide, a contractor.

He alleged that Balogun had entered Olumide’s bedroom where he removed the gold necklace from the wardrobe.

“Balogun entered his boss’ house and opened his wardrobe and went away with one of his gold chains; he took the chain to Itoku market and sold it to a man for N140,000.

“On that same day at 3.00 p.m., Isiaka Mukaila, who buys and sells gold at Itoku market, received the stolen item from Balogun, knowing full well that it was stolen,’’ he said.

The offences contravened Sections 390 and 427 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun 2006.

Further hearing in the case has been fixed for Oct. 10.
