The prosecutor, ASP Ezekiel Ayorinde, told the court that the defendant committed the offence in January, 2019 at the Abule Egba branch of Stanbic Bank.

“The defendant stole N207,000 from Mr Adegboye Olanrewaju and N220,000 from another customer who was only identified as Mr Abass.
“He was exposed by the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) camera installed within the branch.
“It was based on the discoveries from the CCTV footage that the defendant was handed over to the police.”
Ayorinde said that the offence violated Section 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The section stipulates three years in jail if the offender is found guilty of stealing.
