Umar Danladi, a dispatch rider, was charged in a Wuse Zone Six Chief Magistrates’ Court on Monday for allegedly stealing his employer’s motorcycle, valued at N385,000.

Danladi, who lives on Ajegunle Street in Mpape Abuja, was charged with theft by the police. He, on the other hand, has entered a not guilty plea to the case.

The complainant, Ayodele Giegbufidimen of Brains and Hammer Estate, Lifecamp, Abuja, reported the case to the Wuse Zone Three Divisional Police Headquarters on October 6, according to the police prosecutor, ASP Israel Bob-Manuel.

The prosecutor claimed that when the defendant was sent to deliver some products for her clients, he stole a Bajaj motorcycle with the registration number GW 469 VD.

Bob-Manuel further said that the items included meals and a N165,000 HP laptop computer.

He stated that instead of delivering the materials, the defendant diverted to Airport Road, a different route from where he was supposed to be, and alleged that robbers stole the motorcycle and the items.

He claimed the offense was in violation of Section 287 of the Penal Code. Magistrate Farida Ibrahim granted the defendant N500,000 bail with one surety in the same amount.

Ibrahim further stated that the surety must be a resident of the court’s jurisdiction. She postponed the hearing until October 25.
