He explained to the Police that he had no food at home to eat since the CBN cash policy started and as such he had been hungry for some time due to lack of money to buy food.
The Police found him culpable after interrogation and subsequently charged him before the Ogba Magistrates Court for the alleged offence.
He pleaded not guilty when he was arraigned.
The prosecutor, DSP Kehinde Ajayi, asked the Court to give a date for hearing since he pleaded not guilty to enable the Police to prove that he actually committed the alleged offence.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. E. Kubenije, granted him bail and ordered his remand in custody pending when he will perfect his bail conditions.
The matter was adjourned till 18th April, 2023, for mention.
