A 33-year-old trader, Menuba Obi, on Thursday appeared before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly vandalising a car to steal water spray sensor valued at N15,000.

Obi, whose address is unknown,  is being tried for damage and stealing.

According to the prosecutor, Insp. Clement Okuoimose, the accused committed the offences on March 5 at Shoprite premises, Alausa, Ikeja, near the Lagos State Government Secretariat.

He said the accused vandalised a Lexus Jeep to steal a right side water spray sensor valued at N15,000, property of the complainant, Mr Kingsley John.

Okuoimose said the complainant parked his car at Shoprite to buy some things and also watch a movie at the Silverbird galleria.

“The accused went to where the complainant parked his car at the parking lot and damaged the car and stole water spray sensor.

“He was caught by security personnel at the complex, who handed him over to the police,’’ he said.

The offences contravened Sections 285 and 348 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (revised).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Section 285 prescribes three years jail term for offenders.

The accused pleaded innocence of the offences.

The Magistrate, Mrs Y.O. Ekogbule, granted bail to the accused in the sum of N10,000 with one surety in like sum.

She said the surety must be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The case was adjourned to April 26 for mention.
