Olasunbo and Samuel, whose addresses are unknown, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing, before a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Daniel Ighodalo, told the court that the accused committed the offences on Oct. 23 at 3.45 p.m. at Grand Square Supermarket, Victoria Island, Lagos.
“The security guard suspected them and when a search was conducted, they were found to have concealed the bottles of champagne under their clothes.
The police were subsequently invited to arrest the culprits,” Ighodalo said.
He said that the offences committed contravened Sections 409 and 285 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
Section 285 provides that any person who steals any property is guilty of a felony, and liable, if no other punishment is provided, to three years imprisonment.
However, the accused each pleaded not guilty to the charge.
