A 10-year-old boy, Abdulrahman Bashir and his accomplice, 18-year-old Bashir Salisu would spend time in remand over allegation of theft of a phone.

Judge Bello Khalid of the Kano Sharia Court sitting in Fagge, on Thursday, ordered the remand of two accused for alleged trespass and stealing a Techno Spark three phone worth N28,000.

The defendants, who reside in Sheka Quarters, Kano, are facing a three-count charge bordering on criminal conspiracy, trespass and theft.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Mr Khalid ordered that the minor, Bashir, be kept in a remand home while Mr Salisu should be remanded in a Correctional centre.

He adjourned the matter until September 3, for further mention.

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Abdul Wada, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on August 18, at Sheka Quarters, Kano.

He said that on the same date at about 12:00 p.m., the defendants conspired and trespassed into the complaint, Hauwa Hassan’s apartment, situated in Sheka Quarters Kano.

He told the court that the defendants stole from her a Techno Spark three phone valued N28,000.

Mr Wada said the offences contravened the provisions of Sections 97, 343 and 287 of the Kano State Sharia Law.
