A Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Friday granted a bail of N10 million to each of two lovers, who allegedly broke into their neighbour’s residence and stole N10.2 million valuables.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr. Tajudeen Elias, ordered that Tega Teddy and his girlfriend, Karima Edom, both aged 18, should also produce one surety each in like sum.

Elias equally granted bail in like sum to Tega’s father, Uroye, aged 50, who was charged along with the lovers.

The chief magistrate directed that the sureties must be gainfully employed and must be relatives of the accused.

The accused are facing three charges of conspiracy, burglary, and theft.

The trio, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Hafsat Ajibode, told the court that the accused committed the offences on July 16, at 1:30am at No. 8 Onitiri St., Langbasa in Ajah, Lagos.

Ajibode said that the trio conspired to burgle the house of Mrs Folasade Odunuga, and stole her vehicle and other valuables.

She submitted that the accused stole an Avee Chevrolet with Reg. No. AKD 512 AP, a generator, and a plasma television.

According to the prosecutor, the other stolen items include four mobile phones, clothes, jewelry, schoolbags and ladies’ bags.

“The first accused, Tega, and his girlfriend burgled the residence of Odunuga and carted away goods delivered to her.

“The first accused also stole her car, and his father and girlfriend assisted in pushing out the car from the complainant’s compound.

“A neighbour saw the three accused pushing out the car, and called the complainant.

“Tega and his father were arrested, the girlfriend, Edom, was arrested in possession of some of the loot, which she has been selling to residents in that same neighbourhood,’’ Ajibode said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports the offences contravene Sections 287, 307 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The case was adjourned until Sept. 3 for hearing.
