Man­ager, su­per­vi­sor docked for neg­li­gence

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Emma Elekwa

Two per­sons have been ar­raigned be­fore an Abuja Grade 1 Area court over al­leged neg­li­gence which led to an em­ployee ab­scond­ing from his duty post.

John Ehio­sun and Shuaibu Ab­dul­razak, the Man­ager and Su­per­vi­sor of Sar­tun De­vel­op­ment In­no­va­tive Se­cu­rity Com­pany, were charged for shield­ing an of­fender.

The po­lice pros­e­cu­tor, Yakubu Enang told the court that one Mrs. Iye Onoja of Kubwa re­ported at the Dut­sen Al­haji Po­lice sta­tion on Septem­ber 21 how she left for work in the morn­ing of the same date and left the house in charge of one Ti­tus Azos, a se­cu­rity guard, presently at large.

He said on the re­turn of the com­plainant, she dis­cov­ered that the main gate of the house was open and her bed­room bur­gled, adding that the se­cu­rity guard was nowhere to be found, while the cash sum of $2,300, N330,000 and gold val­ued at N2mil­lion were dis­cov­ered to be stolen.

Ac­cord­ing to the pros­e­cu­tor, po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that the ab­sconded se­cu­rity guard was an ac­tive se­cu­rity op­er­a­tive posted to the com­plainant by the ac­cused.

He fur­ther said that the ac­cused per­sons could not fur­nish the po­lice with full de­tails of the said em­ployee to en­able his pos­si­ble ar­rest.

When the charge was read to the ac­cused, Shuaibu Ab­dul­razak pleaded guilty, while John Ehio­sun de­nied the al­le­ga­tion, and was granted bail in the sum of N3mil­lion by the judge, Mo­hammed Marafa, with two rea­son­able sureties who must be res­i­dent within the court’s ju­ris­dic­tion.

The case was ad­journed to Oc­to­ber 27, for sen­tence and hear­ing to en­able the ac­cused pro­duce the se­cu­rity man.
