A bar attendant, Kemi Williams, 25, was on Friday charged before an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly stealing her employer’s N270, 000.

Williams, who resides at Bale Street, near Alpha Beach at Jakande Estate in Lekki, Lagos, is facing a charge of stealing.

The Prosecutor, Nicolas Akpene, told court that the accused committed the offence on April 9 at Top 10 Bar, Itedo, Lekki.

He said that the accused stole the money from the sales she made and ran away with it.

“All efforts by the complainant to get back his money proved abortive,’’ Akpene said.

The offence contravened Section 287 (7) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 287 stipulates seven years imprisonment for offenders.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Magistrate, Mrs S.K. Matepo, granted the accused bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

She said the sureties should swear to an affidavit of means and should show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The case was adjourned until May 8 for mention.
