An Upper Area Court in Kubwa, Abuja ordered that a 28-year-old businesswoman, Mary Emmanuel be remanded in a correctional centre for alleged criminal breach of trust.

The Judge, Gambo Garba however adjourned the matter until April 3 for hearing.

The police charged the defendant who resides in Dutse Alhaji, Abuja with criminal breach of trust and cheating.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Mr Chinedu Ogada told the court that the complainant, Malam Layuza Mohammed reported the matter at Dutse Alhaji Police Station on March 12.

Ogada alleged that the complainant entrusted the defendant with rice, beans and groundnut oil worth N48, 250.

He said all efforts to recover the money for the foodstuffs from the defendant failed.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 312 and 321 of the Penal Code.

According to section 312, whoever commits criminal breach of trust shall be punished with imprisonment which may extend to seven years or with a fine or both.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.

The defence counsel, Geraldine Amah made a bail application citing section 162 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) urging the court to grant bail in the most liberal terms. (
