A 35-year old driver, Paul Adebayo, who allegedly broke into his employer’s house, Adebayo Lateef and stole his jewellery worth N6.17 million, has been caught through the aid of CCTV in Lagos State. 
P.M.EXPRESS reports as was gathered from the submission of the prosecution counsel at the Ogba Magistrates Court, where Adebayo is facing trial for burgling and stealing his boss’ valuables worth the said amount.
However, Adebayo had pleaded not guilty before the Court.
During the hearing, the prosecutor, Inspector Josephine Ikhayere, told the Court that the defendant committed the offences on June 5, at 9:00am, when he burgled the residence of his employer, Mr. Lateef and stole gold bangles, wristwatches, necklaces, four gold chains and a gold ring.
The prosecutor, Ikhayere, while presenting evidence before the Court, presented a CCTV footage allegedly showing the defendant entering into his employer’s bedroom and locking the house’s entrance gate from inside to prevent the housekeeper, who stepped out, from regaining entrance into the compound.
The CCTV footage also showed how the defendant allegedly sneaked into the main house, switched on lights, went into his employer’s bedroom and returned outside 20 minutes later.
The footage also showed how the defendant allegedly tampered with the camera before he rushed out from the apartment when he heard the housekeeper knocking on the gate.
She said that the offences contravened Sections 168(b), 280 and 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mr. Lateef Owolabi, admitted the compatible disc containing the CCTV footage as an exhibit and adjourned the case for cross-examination of the prosecutor by the defendant’s counsel.
