Man Steals Friend’s ATM Card, Empties Account

– An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court will on Thursday sentence a 26-year-old businessman, Richard Chukwu, who pleaded guilty to stealing his associate’s Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card to withdraw N49,000 out of N50,000 in his bank account.

Chukwu had blamed his action on the Devil, and pleaded for leniency on Wednesday before Magistrate J.A. Adigun.

The residents of Agege, Lagos, admitted committing the offence on Oct. 8, at Agege Railway Line. Adigun directed that Chukwu should be remanded in the Kirikiri Prisons until the sentence. The Prosecutor, ASP Clifford Ogu, had submitted that the ATM card belonged to Mr Ezechukwu Nwado.

“The accused secretly stole his ATM card to withdraw his money,” he said. Ogu said that the complainant received a debit alert on his account, and that investigations showed that the accused committed the offence.

“After the theft was detected, the accused was arrested and handed over to the police,” the prosecutor said.
