A 50-year-old man, identified as Yusuf Ahmed, was alleged to have stolen 485 crates of beer, including 330 cartons of trophy, 55 cartons of beer cans, 40 cartons of Budweiser and 50 cartons of Goldberg.
He also carted away two cartons of malt and a number of bottles of soft drinks worth an estimated N2.4 million. The incident was reported to have occurred in Badagry, Lagos.
On Thursday, Ahmed appeared before the Badagry Magistrate Court where he faced a two count charge for breach of peace and theft.
The prosecution counsel has also laid further accusations on the suspect, saying he stole N1.3 million from a Mr Ifeanyi Omoba's shop.
The accused pleaded not guilty to all charges in the courtroom of the Chief Magistrate, Balogun Aka. However, the case has now been adjourned until July 3, 2019, for further hearing while a bail of N500,000 has been granted to the accused.
