A Karmo Grade I Area Court, Abuja, on Monday ordered that two security guards, who allegedly stole two industrial air conditioners worth N1.2 million, be remanded in a correctional centre.
The judge, Alhaji Inuwa Maiwada, who gave the order, adjourned the matter until Oct. 2, for hearing in the bail application of the defendants.
The police charged Okachi Gabriel, 34, and Bunde Terhemba, 35, who live in Karmo, Abuja, with joint act and theft. The prosecutor, Mrs Ijeoma Ukagha, told the court that Mr Otor Lazarus, reported the matter at the Karmo Police Station on Aug. 23.
Ukagha alleged that the complainant employed the defendants as security guards and they were attached to Cognitive Yard CCECC Company, Idu, to secure their property. She alleged that the defendants stole two industrial air conditioners valued at N1.2m.
Ukagha alleged that during police investigation the defendants admitted committing the crime.
The defendants alleged that they sold the two industrial air conditioners for N21, 000 to Idris Abdulrahamam.
The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty. (NAN)
