Two men, Shola Akinbi, 41, and Shola Omotemi, 43, on Friday appeared before an Okitipupa Chief Magistrates’ Court, Ondo State, for alleged stealing of a 62-amp motor battery worth N56, 000.

Akinbi, a motorcyclist and Omotemi, a bricklayer, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.

The police arraigned the defendants along with a 28-year-old trader, Mama Muritala, charged with receiving stolen property.

All the defendants, whose addresses were not given, however, pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, Insp Ayodeji Omoyeigha, told the court that the defendants conspired to commit the offences on Aug. 25, about 06:00 p.m. at a mechanic workshop at Ayeka in Okitipupa.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Philip Akinlopetu, granted each of the defendants bail in the sum of N100, 000 and a surety in like sum.

He directed that the sureties must be resident within the court’s jurisdiction and show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the state .
