A 29-year-old woman, Peculiar Etim, has been arraigned before a Lagos Magistrate Court, sitting in Igbosere, for allegedly stealing the sum of N345,930 from her employer.

Mrs Etim is facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing, preferred against her, by the Police.

She was said to have committed the offences on February 21, 2020, at 9.00a.m. at 41b, Freedom Way, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos State.

The prosecutor, Inspector Ingobo Emby, told the court that the defendant conspired with others still at large and stole the sum of N345,930, belonging to the complainant, Sarah Edwin-Cole.

Emby said the money was realised from previous day’s sales and was to be deposited to the bank before the defendant, an employee of the complainant stole it.

He said the offences are punishable under Sections 287 (7) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

However, Etim who pleaded not guilty to the charge, claimed that she was charmed by two unknown men who influenced her into stealing the money.

According to her, the men told her that there is such money in her employer’s drawer and she should bring it.

Etim said that the men used charms on her, adding that it took her hours to get back to her senses after the men had collected the money from her.

“I didn’t steal the money on purpose,” Etim added.

The Magistrate, Mr A. O. Alogba granted the defendant bail in the sum of N50, 000 with one surety in like sum, and adjourned the case until March 27 for mention.

Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had reported how a nanny was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually abusing her employer’s 11-year-old boy multiple times, which resulted to her getting pregnant and giving birth to his child.
