Driver arraigned for allegedly stealing beer worth N6m

A driver with Guinness Nig. Ltd., Sodiq Ganiyu, on Wednesday appeared before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly stealing 20 pallets of stout worth six million Naira.

The police charged 34-year-old Ganiyu with conspiracy, theft and breach of the peace.

The Magistrate, Mr T. O. Fashanu, granted the defendant bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Fashanu adjourned the case until Oct. 27 for mention.
