Drug stealer gets jail sentence from Yaba magistrate court


A Yaba Magistrates Court in Lagos State on Thursday sentenced a 31-year-old sales representative, Etop Iboro, to two years’ imprisonment for stealing drugs worth N398,000 from his employer, Yaba Psychiatric Hospital.

The Magistrate, Mrs. S.O. Obasa, held that the prosecution proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt. She said that the prosecution was able to prove both counts of breaking-in and stealing through the four witnesses it called and the exhibits it tendered.

Earlier, the police had arraigned Iboro on July 4, 2019, on a two-count charge of a break-in and stealing from an employer. The defendant, Iboro, however, pleaded not guilty to the offences and was granted bail.


The Prosecutor, Sgt. Godwin Oriabure submitted that Iboro broke into the hospital’s pharmacy through a window at 2 a.m., on June 13, 2019, and stole the drugs. He added that when the hospital noticed that the drugs were missing, it conducted a search and the stolen drugs were found in Iboro’s cupboard.

He noted that the offences contravene Sections 309 and 287 (7) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

The magistrate did not give the sales representative an option of fine.

“I hereby pronounce you, Etop Iboro, guilty, and sentence you to two years’ imprisonment on count one and count two,” she held.

Update: 1 killed, 4 arrested in Abuja bank failed robbery, Atiku reacts in incident

...reinvigorated security in the new year


Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has reacted to Saturday’s bank robbery in the Mpape area of Abuja, the nation’s capital.

He commended the security operatives who arrived at the scene on time to foil the attack.


Atiku, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections, called for improved security of the country and its people next year.

“I am proud of the proactiveness of the Nigerian Army and Police in foiling the bank robbery in Abuja,” he said in a tweet.


The former Vice President added, “It is my hope that this will be the face of a reinvigorated security in the new year.”

His tweet came hours after a group of armed men attacked the commercial bank located at Mpape, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).


The suspects were said to have gained entry into the banking hall after shooting sporadically into the air to scare people away.

Their hope of successful and well-planned operation was, however, dashed as they came to the end of the road after they were trapped inside the bank.

This was as a result of the prompt response by security operatives made up of men of the Nigeria Police Forces, Nigerian Army, and the Department of State Services (DSS) who positioned themselves strategically in the area.

An exchange of gunfire between the suspects and the security personnel ensued thereafter, resulting in the death of one of the attackers while four others were arrested.
