A Ghanaian, who was charged with theft of motorcycle spare parts valued N550,000, on Monday urinated in court when a two-count of offence of conspiracy and stealing was read to him.
Mohammed Daniel, 34, whose address is unknown, sells pastries (puff-puff).
The edgy accused urinated on the floor of the Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court as he was docked.
Daniel immediately pleaded guilty to the charges.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Cpl. Iyobosa Onaiwu said the offences were committed on March 25 at 12.15 p.m. at No. 23, Coate St., Ebute Meta.
She said the accused went into the shop of one Mr Silva Chinemadu and stole the spare parts.
Onaiwu noted that the offences contravened Section 285 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.
The accused may be sentenced to three years imprisonment, if convicted, under Section 285, while conspiracy attracts a two-year jail term.
The Magistrate, Mr F. J. Adefioye, adjourned the case to May 6 for fact and sentence. (NAN)
