A 22-year-old unemployed man, Michael Chindo, was on Monday, arraigned before an Upper Area Court Gwagwalada, FCT, for allegedly stealing two generators valued at N350,000.

The Police charged Chindo, who lives in old Kutunku Gwagwalada, Abuja with criminal trespass and theft.
The Prosecution counsel, Abdullahi Tanko, told the court that the complainant, Mr Joseph Abiriyi of Williams street, old Kutunku reported the matter at the police station on Sept. 24.

He said the offences contravened the provision of Sections 348 and 287 of the Penal Code.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Judge, Mr Sani Umar, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N400,000 with one reasonable and reliable surety in like sum, who must reside within the jurisdiction of the court.

Umar also said that the surety must provide two recent passport photographs and valid means of identification.
