The convict, of no fixed address, was charged for criminal trespass, criminal conspiracy, intimidation and attempt to commit an offence.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Mr J.S Atinko, informed the court that the convict and two others, now at large, trespassed into the shop of Ikenna Oko of A49 Hamza Abdullahi road, Paze II, to steal.

He said they conspired and entered the shop, threatening the complainant’s sales girl with a machete in an attempt to steal her cell phone valued at N 150,000.

According to him, the convict was arrested after the salesgirl raised an alarm.

He said that the offenses contravened the provisions of sections 348, 396, and 95 of the Penal Code.
