A 50-year-old auto mechanic, Nkem Vitalis, appeared in Ikeja Chief Magistrates Court on Tuesday for alleged theft of a Volkswagen bus, worth N800,000.

Vitalis, who resides at 20 Anglicana Street, across from Agbado-Oja in Ogun, faces one count of two counts of conspiracy and robbery.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The prosecutor, ASP Akeem Raji, told the court that the defendant committed the crimes, with others still at large, on September 19 in Balogun Street, Oshodi, Lagos.

Raji said that the defendant stole a Volkswagen LT bus, owned by the plaintiff, Mr. Chidi Eze, from where he was parked.

According to him, the crimes contravene articles 287 and 411 of the penal laws of the state of Lagos, 2015.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that Section 287 stipulates three years in prison for theft, while Section 411 attracts two years in prison for conspiracy.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. O. I. Adelaja, granted the defendant N200,000 bonds, with two bonds in the same amount.

Adelaja said that the bonds must be remunerated, with evidence of two years of payment of taxes to the Lagos state government.

She, thereafter, postponed the case until December 15, to mention it.
