Man remanded over alleged armed robbery


A Kaduna Chief Magistrates’ Court on Thursday remanded a 33-year-old man, Stanley Julius, in a corrections centre for alleged armed robbery.

The police charged Julius, who is unemployed and resides in Ungwan Sarki Malali, Kaduna, with conspiracy, robbery and unlawful possession of stolen property.

Magistrate Ibrahim Emmanuel, who did not take Julius’ plea, adjourned the case until May 22 for mention and receipt of legal advice from the state Director of Public Prosecution, DPP.

The Prosecutor, Insp Chidi Leo, had earlier informed the court that the suspect committed the offence on April 11 at Kinkinau Kaduna.

Leo said that the suspect and others at large robbed one Mr Eric Daniel of his iPhone worth N380,000 and Samsung S6 worth N180,000 at gunpoint in his house.

He said Julius and his accomplices, who were armed with a locally made gun, entered the complainant’s apartment and robbed him and his family.

The prosecutor said the complainant’s mobile phones were eventually tracked to the suspect.

He said the offence contravened the provisions of Penal Code of Kaduna State, 2017.
