Abuja, – A 26-year-old man, David Pius, was on Monday docked in a Grade I Area Court, Karu, Abuja, for allegedly stealing land documents worth N2.5 million.

The police charged Pius, 38, with theft.

The Prosecution Counsel, Edwin Ochayi, told the court that sometime in 2020, the defendant was employed to manage the complainant’s farm located at Kuje Area Council, Abuja and dishonestly stole land documents situated at Sabon, Lugbe, Abuja worth N2.5 million.

Mayana adjourned the case until April 12, for further hearing. (NAN)
