The prosecution counsel, Olarewaju Osho, told the court on Wednesday, that the complainant, an engineer and supervisor of Parklin International Academy in Abuja reported the matter at the Kurudu Police Station on December 6.
Osho said the defendants, on December 4, stole two units of 32 inches Samsung plasma TV and 69 units of Eurofoam school mattresses, all valued at N3.1 million.
