An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos, on Monday, ordered that a 23-year-old man, Israel Adesanya, who pleaded guilty to breaking into a house and stealing biscuits, and recharge cards, be remanded in prison, pending sentencing.

Magistrate T.A. Ojo ordered that Adesanya, who resides at Baruwa Ipaja, Lagos, should be remanded in the Kirikiri Prisons, Lagos, pending review of the facts of the case and sentencing, as he pleaded guilty. Ojo adjourned the case until Sept. 30.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Sgt. Kenrich Nomayo told the court that Adesanya committed the offense on May 20, at No.10 Cosmos Avenue, Baruwa Ipaja, Lagos.

Nomayo said that the defendant conducts himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace. The offense, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 285 308 and 168 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. Reports that stealing attracts three years’ imprisonment.
