A 29-year-old lady has been arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate’s court for stealing a handbag loaded with condoms at a nightclub in Ikeja, Lagos state.
Mary Johnson, however, said she mistook the bag of condoms for cash.
It was gathered that the incident occurred at Diamond Club, Allen Avenue.
Johnson was charged before a court and was remanded.
The victim, Florence Ahokpa, was said to have kept her handbag where it was stolen. She was said to be having a discussion with someone.
After the discussion, Florence realised that her bag was missing and an alarm was immediately raised. At that time the suspect was already set to leave the club house with the bag.
On retrieving the bag, it was discovered that it contained her phones and other personal belongings.
The suspect was subsequently arraigned at the Ikeja Magistrate’s court, where she pleaded not guilty.
She was granted bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum by the presiding Magistrate, Mrs A.O Layinka.
