Lagos –   A 37-year-old, Tunde Isiaka, who stole a pair of shoes, a battery and an ignition key at private residence in the night, on Monday pleaded guilty to the crime at an Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court, Lagos.

The accused, who resides in Ebute Meta, was arraigned on a charge of stealing.

Police Prosecutor Maria Dauda told the court that the accused committed the offence on Aug. 1 at 10.00 p.m. at No. 1, Denton St., Ebute Meta.

She said the accused stolen a pair of shoes valued at N3,500, a car battery valued at N30,000 and a N7,000 ignition key, property of Mr Adamu Shehu.
