A Magistrates’ Court in Kafanchan, Kaduna State, on Friday ordered a 25-year-old man, Danjuma Didam, to be remanded in a correctional facility after he confessed to stealing 22 pieces of rail pandrol clips.
Didam was charged by the police with criminal trespass and theft, an offence under sections 327 and 270 of the Kaduna State Penal Code.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Isah Hassan, had told the court that a railway staff, Akwanga Patrick, arrested and brought the defendant to the station, on July 13.
The judge, Michael Bawa, adjourned the matter until July 27, for summary trial of the defendant.
