The prosecutor said the accused and others at large on the fateful day burgled the house of one Mrs  Sidikat Hassan.

He also alleged that the accused and others at large stole one Gionee phone valued at N15,000, small Nokia phone valued at N7,000 and  a sum of N408, 000,  belonging to the complainant.

The  Magistrate, Mrs Taiwo Ajibade, ordered the remand of the accused pending  advice from the DPP’s office.

She  adjourned the case until April 24 for further hearing.
