The Police, on Friday, arraigned one Lawrence Amadasun, 42, before an Ogbeson Chief Magistrates’ Court in Benin City for alleged stealing of N6.2 million
The defendant is being tried for a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing. Police prosecutor, Insp. Charity Asemota alleged that the defendant committed the offence on Dec. 16, 2019.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge.
The Chief Magistrate, Prince Mutairu Oare, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N200,000 , with two sureties in like sum. One of the sureties must be a responsible public servant and must depose to Affidavit of Means and deposit two recent passport photographs of themselves and that of the defendant.

The Chief Magistrate, thereafter, adjourned the case until June 15 for further hearing.
