A Kano Sharia Court on Wednesday ordered that two friends be remanded in prison custody for stealing a phone and a computer keypad worth N60,700.

The police charged Abdullahi Hamza, 21, and Mujahid Suleiman, 20, with criminal conspiracy, trespass and theft.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to stealing the Infinix phone worth N56,000 and a keypad worth N4,700.

The judge, Ismail Muhammad Ahmed, ordered that the defendants be remanded until June 6.

Prosecution counsel Abdul Wada told the court that the defendants committed the offence in Sheka Babban Layi in Kumbotso local government area, Kano, on May 16.
