Abah said that on the same date, the complainants alleged that the defendant conspired with five others now at large, and robbed them at Plot 242 Mabuchi, Abuja.

He said the items stolen were; two laptops, GSM phones, two wrist watches, gold, earrings, travelling bag containing shoes and clothes, with a Lexus L300 jeep.

“The jeep with registration No. YAB 214 TD, belonged to Mrs. Emegokwue Angela.

“He also forcefully collected her ATM card and withdrew N100, 000,’’ he said.

He also said that during the police investigation, the Lexus jeep and other items were recovered from him at Minna, Niger where he went to sell them.

Abah said the offence was contrary to Sections 97 and 298(a) of the Penal Code.
