Man in court over alleged theft of ATM card, withdrawing N150, 000
The Police in Abuja on Wednesday docked one Eze Nathaniel in a Kubwa Grade 1 Area Court for allegedly stealing an ATM card and withdrawing N150, 000.
The defendant, of Jaji Street, Kubwa, Abuja was docked on a one-count charge of theft.
The prosecutor, John Okpa, told the court that one Uche Anyawu reported the matter at the Kubwa Police Station on July 4.
He said the defendant dubiously stole the complainant’s Fidelity Bank ATM card and withdrew N150, 000 sometime in September.
Okpa said the offence contravened Section 287 of the Penal Code.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The defence counsel, Anenin Enabosi, in an application for bail, assured the court that his client would appear in court for trial and that a reliable surety would be provided.
The judge, Abdulwahab Mohammed, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N200, 000 with one reliable surety, who must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.
He adjourned the matter until Aug. 14, for hearing.
