The police on Thursday arraigned two company drivers in an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly stealing 18 rolls of paper reels valued at N10 million.
The two suspects, Paul Izehi (35) of 197 Old Abeokuta Road, Agege and Akpan Aniema (58) of Shasha area, Lagos, are charged with conspiracy and stealing from the organisation’s warehouse.
The Prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the offences were committed on June 2 at 14, Sapala Street, Ogba, Lagos.
