On Wednesday, a Shari'a Court in Kano issued a remand order for 18-year-old Adamu Isah, who is accused of stealing four iron rods valued N40,000.
Isah, who resides in Kano's Kofar Nassarawa Quarters, is accused of theft and criminal conspiracy.
The accused admitted guilt to the crimes.
Malam Ismai'l Muhammed-Ahmed, the presiding judge, postponed the case until September 17 for a summary trial.
The complainant, Yunusa Abdullahi, a security guard at TEC Construction Company in Fagge near Kofar Abbale, reported the incident at Fagge Police Station on August 22, according to the prosecution's attorney, Insp. Abdullahi Wada.
Wada claimed that the complainant learned that at 4:00 on August 22, Isa and a man named Musa Gwai-Gwai, who is currently on the run, criminally planned to get into the construction company and steal four massive iron rods.
One of the iron rods was discovered in Isah's hands during the arrest, but the other three were nowhere to be located, according to Wada.
According to Wada, the offence was against Section 96 and 133 of the Kano State Shari'a Law.
