A Grade I Area Court in Mpape, Abuja, on Thursday ordered the remand of one Jazuhi Iliya, 25, and Ojo Obayamen, 27, who allegedly broke into a shop and stole items worth N30, 000, in a correctional centre.

Iliya and Obayamen, all of Mabushi area, Abuja were docked on four-count bordering on criminal conspiracy, shop breaking, criminal trespass and theft.

The prosecutor said during police investigation the mood and rana were found in their possession.

The offences, he said, contravened the provisions of Sections 97, 347, 348 and 288 of the Penal Code.
