An Onitsha Magistrate’s Court has adjourned till November 24 hearing in a case of robbery brought against an Anambra Stateborn Nollywood actor, Mr. Ifeanyi Azodo. Azodo was arrested by the police in Onitsha recently for an alleged robbery in a private hotel.
The police Area Commander, Alhaji Abubaka Yahaya, and the state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Nkiru Nwode, confirmed the arrest. Meanwhile, a middle-aged man, Pascal Julius, was also on Tuesday arraigned before an Atani Magistrates’ Court presided over by I. O. Chukwudebelu for stealing and selling of 560 cartons of Hero beer, property of Amiwaco Resources Limited. But after the charge was read to the accused, he pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, ASP J. O. Uwakwe told our reporter that the driver loaded the beer at the Hero depot and left. But after some days, he went back to report that he had an accident. Uwakwe said the company’s quick intervention led to the recovery of some of the goods while 560 cartons valued at N1.4 million were missing. The matter was later adjourned till November 9 for hearing.
