Eromosere Ikpefan, aged 24, stood trial at the Ejigbo Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Monday, accused of stealing two cameras valued at N6.2 million.

The defendant, whose residential address was not disclosed, pleaded not guilty to the charges of theft leveled against him by the police.

According to the prosecutor, ASP Benedict Aigbokhan, the defendant allegedly committed the offenses on January 19 at Powerline Junction, Ejigbo, Lagos.

It was alleged that the defendant stole a Canon 5D Mark IV camera worth N3.5 million, belonging to Samuel Oladayo.

The prosecutor further stated that the defendant sold the camera to Dalu Media Enterprises at Alaba International Market for N480,000.

“On the same day, the defendant stole from another person a Sony A7 camera, its battery, charger and two lenses, all valued at N2.7 million, the property of one Anthony Udong.

“He took the Sony A7 camera to computer village, Ikeja, and sold it to one Mr Onwuka at the rate of N500,000,” Mr Aigbokhan said.

The prosecutor said the total value of all stolen items was N6.2 million.

He said the offences contravened section 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2015.

The magistrate, K. A. Ariyo, granted the defendant N50,000 bail with two sureties.

She ordered that the sureties be gainfully employed and show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State government.

Ariyo subsequently adjourned the case until March 25 for mention.
