The police on Tuesday arraigned a 19-year-old man, Fatai Kosoko, at an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, for allegedly stealing a N150.00 tin of milk from a physically-challenged girl, Saluma Abah.

Kosoko, of No. 8 Branco Street, Lagos Island, is facing a two-count charge of stealing and assault before Mrs. A. O. Soladoye.

Prosecuting Inspector Jimoh Joseph told the court that the defendant assaulted one Nura Muhammed, Abah’s brother, who helps in ‎pushing the girl on a wheelchair.

Kosoko, the police prosecutor said, beat up Muhammed and tore his clothes.

Joseph said the incident took place on October 3 at about 2:00 p.m. at Golden Gate Bus Stop, Ikoyi, Lagos.

He said the tin of milk belonged to Abah.

“Somebody gave the crippled girl the milk as a gift and the defendant stole it from her. When the girl’s brother asked the defendant to return it to his sister, the defendant started a fight with him and tore his clothes.

“Policemen patrolling the area witnessed the incident and arrested the defendant,” Joseph said.

The offences, he added, were punishable under Sections ‎170 and 285 (1) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges.
