A security guard, Adedapo Moshood, who allegedly broke into a house and attempted to steal, on Tuesday appeared before a magistrate court sitting in Ile-Ife, Osun State.
The police charged Moshood with five counts of breaking, entry, conspiracy, intent to commit felony and breach of peace.
The Prosecuting Counsel, Abdullahi Emmanuel, told the court that the defendant committed the offense on January 11, 2021 at about 2am at Omitoto Line II, Ile-Ife.
Emmanuel further alleged that the defendant and others, at large, broke into the houses of Abolade Omowunmi, Akor Benedict and Olowoyo Musa with intent to commit felony.
The prosecution also alleged that the defendant conducted himself in a manner likely to cause breach of peace when he left his allocated beat as a night guard at RAYNUD Filling Station, Ile-Ife.
The offences, he said, contravened the provisions of Sections 249(d), 413 and 516 of the Criminal Code.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Defense Counsel, Ola Ibrahim, urged the court to grant his client bail on liberal terms.
Magistrate A. A. Adebayo admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N500,000 with one surety in like sum and adjourned the case to February 9, 2021.
