A 34-year-old bus conductor, Dolapo Pine, who allegedly stole a passenger’s Automated Teller Machine ATM card and withdrew N82,000 with it, on Monday appeared before a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State.

The police charged the Bus conductor, Pine who resides on Jakande Estate, Isolo, Lagos, with conspiracy and stealing.

According to the Prosecutor, Insp. Ajaga Agboko, the bus conductor committed the offences on Feb. 8, at 11.05 a.m. at Chisco Bus Stop on Lekki/Epe Expressway, Lagos State.

Ogboko said that the conductor conspired with the driver of a bus boarded by one Mrs Damilola Arowolo, and stole her ATM card and a Tecno phone worth N6,000.

“The defendant and his accomplice forcefully obtained the Personal Identification Number (PIN) from her, pushed her out of the vehicle and later withdrew N82,000 from her account.

“The defendant was later caught but his accomplice is still at large,” the prosecutor said.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 287 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Magistrate T. A. Anjorin-Ajose admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Anjorin-Ajose adjourned the case until March 3 for hearing.
