Man in court for stealing fried chicken

A man, Emeka Nwachukwu, on Wednesday appeared before an Abuja Magistrates' Court for allegedly stealing 17 pieces of fried chicken, the News Agency of Nigeria reported.
Hyginus Ejiofor, a resident of 1, Safix Street, Wuse Zone 4, Abuja, had reported at Wuse Zone 3 Police Station that Nwachukwu, of the same address, committed the offence on April 8, 9 and 10.
He alleged that Nwachukwu broke into his garden and stole many items including the fried chicken.
Other items allegedly stolen by the accused, included 10 bottles of whiskey, seven bottles of red wine, four bottles of beer, four bottles of red label whisky, six bottles of malt, home theatre projector, and one big bag of rice all valued at N332,000.
Ejiofor further alleged that the accused assaulted him in his garden, tore his shirt valued at N3,000 and called him names when he accosted him.
According to him, he lost his Blackberry phone valued at N65,000 and N35,000 cash which he was holding.
Ejiofor explained that he rented the garden from Nwachukwu and paid him N1.4m on February 2, while the garden was handed over to him on March 4.
He said that Nwachukwu wanted him to buy some items, which he refused because the costs were too high, adding that thereafter, the suspect began to threaten him and offered to refund his money.
Nwachukwu was charged with criminal trespass, theft, assault and mischief, which contravened the Penal Code Law.
The accused pleaded not guilty, claiming that he had been a good friend to Ejiofor and lived around the same place.
Following his plea, the prosecutor, Abdullahi Adamu, prayed the court for an adjournment to open his case.
Magistrate Vera Tomtukura granted the accused bail in the sum of N400,000 and one surety who must be a civil servant of any grade level and must live within the court's jurisdiction.
