Two men, Ibrahim Abdullahi and Anas Ishaq, who allegedly conspired and stole their employer’s N90 million were on Wednesday brought before a Magistrates’ Court sitting in Kano.
Abdullahi, 35, and Ishaq, 30, working with A.A. Rano Nig. Ltd., are facing a four-count charge of criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust by servant, cheating and forgery.
They reside at no 171 Dabai Quarters, Kano and No 30 Gen. Sani Abacha Way, Gusau, respectively.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Yusuf Sale, told court that a letter of complaint was received on the matter by the police authorities on March 28.
He said that Abdullahi, Ishaq and one Jabir Suleiman, now at large, criminally conspired and betrayed the trust vested on them as workers of A.A. Rano Nig. Ltd.
“The trio deceitfully sold petroleum products, valued at N90 million and converted the money to their own use and presented forged bank teller to the company.”
The prosecutor said that the offences contravened Sections 97,314,322, and 364 of the Penal Code.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Senior Magistrate, Aminu Fagge, ordered the accused to be remanded in prison custody.
Fagge adjourned the case to April 20 for mention, pending the outcome of investigation on the matter. (NAN)
