A mother, Lola Disu, and her son, Ahmed Disu, have been remanded at Kirikiri Prison in Lagos following their arraignment on charges of allegedly stealing office property valued at over N122 million from Uccas Resources Ltd.

Justice Abimbola Awogboro of the Federal High Court in Lagos ordered the remand after the duo’s arraignment by the police on a 14-count charge of theft. According to the charges, Lola and Ahmed, along with other unidentified individuals, conspired to steal various properties from Uccas Resources Ltd on June 25, 2021. The company is represented by its Managing Director, Ukata Christian.

The police alleged that the accused forged a court order stating “possession taken by court order on June 25, 2021” with the intent to use it against Uccas Resources Ltd and its Managing Director. The stolen items reportedly included computers, office chairs, tables, air-conditioners, printers, scanners, copiers, industrial water filters, confidential documents, and other office equipment.

One of the specific charges stated:

“That you, Lola Disu ‘f’, Ahmed Disu ‘m’, on the same date, time, and place, within the aforesaid judicial division, did steal office properties of the Reception Desk: (a) reception tables with drawers valued at N650,000, (b) reception chairs valued at N71,000, (c) Computer (CPU, monitor, and printer; all HP Pavilion Tower Computers) (10th generation Intel Core, i7, 1.8GHz): dual storage drive 256GB valued at N861,000, (d) HP 5-in-one printer, scanner, and copier valued at N73,000, (e) Intercom connected to all offices: receiver valued at N5,000, (f) office main line 012916425 (with handset) valued at N45,000, (g) visitors memo booklet valued at N700, total value of property amount to N1.705 million, property of Uccas Resources Ltd, represented by Ukata Christian, the MD/CEO.”
