An Ikeja High Court on Monday arraigned one Ibrahim Damana for allegedly stealing a grey Lexus Rx350, worth N7 million.

Damana, whose address and occupation was not provided, is facing a two-count charge bordering on conspiracy and armed robbery.

He pleaded not guilty to both charges.

The Lagos State Prosecutor, Mr Ola Azeez, told the court that Ibrahim, in company of others still at large, conspired to commit the robbery on July 17, 2021 around the Berger area of the state.

Azeez said that the suspect, with his conspirators, while armed with an AK-47 rifle, robbed one Osagie of a grey Lexus Rx350 worth N7 million, belonging to one Ogunsina Adeola.

The prosecutor, thereafter, applied for a trial date in view of the plea of the defendant.

He said that the offences contravened the provisions of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Justice Oyindamola Ogala, after approving witness summons, adjourned the matter to Jan. 24, 2024 and Jan. 31, 2024 for commencement of trial.
