Prosecutor Innocent Uko told the court that the accused committed the offence at Ajun Plaza in Gbaji area of Badagry, but did not state when the offence was committed.

Uko said the accused stole the items from the shop of the complainant, Miss Gbemi Adoveh.

The accused, according to the section, may be sentenced to three years in jail on conviction.

The accused, however, denied the charge.

Mr Remi Ajose, counsel to the accused, urged the court to grant him bail, saying he will not jump bail.

In his ruling, Magistrate Abiodun Etti granted the accused bail in the sum of N50,000 with a surety in like sum.

Further hearing has been adjourned to Oct. 7.
