A 37-year-old man, Kunle Omotosho, has been arraigned at an Ado-Ekiti Magistrates’ Court in Ekiti State for allegedly stealing cocoa trees.

The defendant, of no fixed address, is standing trial on a two-count charge of malicious damage and theft of cocoa trees.

The prosecutor, Caleb Leranmo, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on October 25, about 10 am, at Igbo Aso Farm, Ado-Ekiti.

He alleged that Omotosho damaged the cocoa trees, valued at N100,000, belonging to Chief Sunday Ogunleye.

Leranmo alleged that the accused stole logs of tree, valued at N120,000, belonging to the complainant.

He said the offences contravened sections 451 and 390 (9) of the

Criminal Code Cap C16 Laws of Ekiti State 2012.

The prosecutor asked for adjournment to enable him study the case file and present his witnesses.

His counsel, Mr. Peter Ogunkinle, urged the court to grant him bail, promising he will not jump bail.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Taiwo Ajibade, granted bail to the defendant at N50,000 with two sureties, who must have verifiable addresses and voter cards.

She adjourned the case till November 21 for hearing.
