A 27-year-old, Emmanuel Dosunmu, who allegedly broke into a house near the Bell University, Ota, Ogun, on Tuesday appeared in an Ota Magistrates’ Court.
Dosunmu, who lives at No. 42, Oretola St., Iyana-Ilogbo, Ota, is facing a two-charge of burglary and intention to steal.
The accused allegedly committed the offences on Jan. 1 at 12.00 p. m. at No. 25, the Bells Street, Ota, according to the prosecution.
Sgt. Chudu Gbesi told the court that the accused broke into the house with the intention to steal.
The offences contravened Sections 361 and 411 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.
The accused, however, denied the charge.
Ruling on the oral bail application of the accused, the Senior Magistrate, Mr S. O. Banwo, granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties.
He said the sureties must be resident within the court’s jurisdiction and should be gainfully employed.
In addition, the sureties should show evidence of tax payment to Ogun Government and also submit four recent passport-size photographs to the court.
The case was adjourned until March 22.
