She said that the defendant and one other, now at large smartly opened a Honda Civic car, using a contrasted master key.

She said that Yusuf opened the car with intention to steal the car but was caught by Alhassan immediately.

Obatomi said during police investigations, the defendant “openly confessed“ to have opened uncountable cars and had stolen laptop, cell phones, car stereos and other valuable items.

The prosecuting counsel said that the defendant also confessed that he had been arrested and convicted for the similar offence in 2016.

She added that the offence contravened Sections 79 and 95 of the Penal Code.

Yusuf, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge and the Senior Area Court Judge, Ahmed Ado, granted him bail.

He, however, ordered the defendant to produce a surety who must be a salary earner of any cooperative organisation and reside within the jurisdiction of the court.

The judge adjourned the matter until Sept. 13 for hearing.
