In a recent legal proceeding, 30-year-old Ali Salisu appeared before the Lugbe Grade I Area Court in Abuja on Thursday, facing charges of allegedly stealing musical instruments valued at N1.8 million from a church.

Salisu, a resident of Waru village in Kabusa, Abuja, stands accused of housebreaking and theft.

The prosecuting counsel, Mr. S. O. Osho, informed the court that the defendant unlawfully entered the premises of the church, operated by Pastor Bimbo Okoli of House 4 Plot 2B, Super Cell Shara 1 Estate, Kabusa, Abuja.

Osho revealed that Salisu, formerly employed by the church, allegedly stole an amplifier, generator cable, and drum sets valued at N1.8 million. The prosecutor stated that the defendant’s actions contravened the provisions of sections 312 and 322 of the penal code.

In response, Judge Malam Aliyu Kagarko granted the defendant bail in the sum of N3 million, with one surety required to provide a similar amount.

The judge scheduled the next hearing for April 17 to further address the case. (NAN)
