Lagos: Driver arraigned for allegedly stealing beer worth N6 million

A driver with Guinness Nig. Ltd., Sodiq Ganiyu, on Wednesday appeared before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly stealing 20 pallets of stout worth six million Naira.

The police charged 34-year-old Ganiyu with conspiracy, theft and breach of the peace.

The prosecutor, ASP Racheal Williams, told the court that Ganiyu, a resident of 28, Agbowo St., Isokan, Ogun, committed the offences on Sept. 12 at 1 Akanni Dorathy St., Ikeja.

The alleged offences contravene Sections 168, 287 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. The Magistrate, Mr T. O. Fashanu, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.

He, however, pleaded not guilty. Court adjourned the case until Oct. 27 for mention.
