Security Guard Arraigned Over Alleged Negligent Conduct.



On Monday, a 38-year-old security guard, Francis Samaila, was arraigned by an Upper Area Court Kubwa, FCT, for alleged negligence, leading to property loss.

The Prosecution Counsel, Mr John Okpa, told the court that the complainant, Mr Godswill Aadum, employed the defendant as a security guard to safeguard items in Kubwa Plaza.

Okpa alleged that the defendant abandoned the plaza, and as a result, electrical cables worth N1 million, the property of the complainant, were stolen on March 7.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of section 198 of the Penal Code.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.

The defence counsel, Mr John Adah, cited Section 36 Subsection 5 of the 1999 constitution, urging the court to exercise its discretion to the defendant’s favour and grant bail on liberal terms.

Adah said the defendant would not jump bail if granted, adding that he had a reliable surety.

The judge, Malam Yahaya Sheshi, admitted the defendant to N1 million bail with one surety who must reside within the court’s jurisdiction.

Sheshi said the surety must produce means of identification, two passport photographs and a printout of his Bank Verification Number(BVN).

He adjourned the matter until Aug.3 for a hearing.
