A woman, Hannah Bassey, on Wednesday, was arraigned in a Karu Upper Area Court in  Abuja for allegedly stealing personal belongings and N200,000 cash from her roommate.

The police charged Bassey, 48, who lives in Nyanya, Abuja with housebreaking and theft.

He said that during the police investigation, the defendant could not give a satisfactory account of herself. The prosecutor said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 354 and 288 of the Penal Code.

The Judge, Malam Yusuf Adamu, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N150,000 with one surety in like sum.

He also said an identification card and statement of account of the surety must be kept in the court’s custody.

The judge adjourned the case until November 8 for further hearing.
