A 22-year-old man, Eniola Kareem, has been arraigned by the Nigerian police on Wednesday at an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court for allegedly stealing a Bible and phone worth N2,500 from Word Life Bible Church, Ayobo, Lagos.

Eniola Kareem, who is said to reside at No. 22, Ijesha St., Ayobo in Lagos, is charged with theft.

Meanwhile, the prosecution counsel, Samuel Mishozumu, had told the court that Kareem committed the offense on May 19.

Mishozumu also said the offender criminally entered the church at Amule Ayobo in Lagos and stole a Bible as well as Nokia phone valued at N2, 500, which belong to one Ms. Fatima Adeyibo.

He also told the court that Kareem was caught by members of the church who later handed him over to the police. Mishozumu, however, said the crime contravened Section 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.

More so, PostNaija gathered that kareem Eniola, is liable to three years in prison if convicted. The young man, however, pleaded not guilty after the charge was read to him.

The Magistrate O.D. Njoku then admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N20, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

Njoku, later adjourned the case to July 16, for further hearing.
