A 33-year-old man, Bitrus Boyi, was on Thursday arraigned in a Gombe Chief Magistrates’ Court, for alleged conspiracy, trespass and theft.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Kabiru Shu’aibu told the court that the accused person on Oct. 29 at about 10.00 p.m. conspired with two others at large to commit the offences.
He said the offences contravened Sections 96, 343 and 286 of the Penal Code.
He said that they scaled into Lucy Kalai’s house, behind Evangel School Tumfure and charted away 2,000 litres of plastic water tank valued at N80, 000.
The prosecutor, who gave the names of the two other accused persons as Jerry and Abel, said the police was on the hunt for them.
Boyi, however, denied committing the offences.
Shu’aibu further told the court that investigation into the matter was still in progress.
He applied for adjournment of the trial to enable the police complete investigation.
The Chief Magistrate, Mr Japhet Maida, ordered remand of the accused person and adjourned the case until Nov.15 for further mention.
