Court

A 38-year-old headteacher, David Ijadele, who allegedly stole N305, 200 from Rich Way School, Ikosi-Ketu in Lagos, was on Wednesday brought before an Ogudu Magistrate’s Court.

The accused, a resident of Elebiju in Ketu area, is facing a charge of stealing.

According to the prosecutor, Sgt. Lucky Ihiehie, the complainant, Mrs Aderonke Adewole, reported the theft at Ketu Police Station.

Ihiehie said the complainant, the proprietress of the school, had employed the accused as the headteacher and accountant of the school in 2014.

He said the complainant discovered that the N305, 000 was missing from the school between September 2015 and January 2016 when the accused left the school.

“The accused had collected money from the students to register them for WAEC examinations and other fees for laboratory.

“Some students’ school fees and some amount meant for the teachers’ salary which he did not remit to the schools’ account are also included in the N305, 200.”

Ihiehie added that the accused, knowing full well what he had done, decided to resign from the school before he could be exposed.

The offences contravened Sections 285 (7) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

Ijadele, however, pleaded innocence of the offence.

The Magistrate, Mrs O. Sule-Amzat, admitted the accused to a bail of N20, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

She said one of the sureties must be a blood relation of the accused with an evidence of gainful employment.

“The sureties should deposit N25, 000 each in the account of the Chief Registrar and produce an evidence of tax payment.”

The magistrate adjourned the case to Nov. 23 for mention.
