Outsmarting the security personnel, a16-year-old boy, Adekunle Ayomikun, sneaked into the toilet of a bank and took temporary shelter overnight to steal N340,000 from the bulk room.
The accused was on Monday hauled up before an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on a charge of stealing.
The teenage boy, however, pleaded guilty to the charge
The Magistrate, Mrs K. O. Doja-Ojo, remanded him at the Special Correctional Centre for Boys at Oregun in Ikeja area.

Ayomikun had told the court that he entered the bank at 4.00 pm before closing and locked himself in the toilet.

“After closing hours at night, I went to the bulk room of the bank where I saw money, and I took N340,000 and kept it in my pocket.

“I had a lighter with me, so when I was trying to come out of the bank, the lighter attracted the security guards at the bank who saw me, then I ran back into the toilet and locked myself up, again,” he said.

“When l came out of the toilet, the security guards searched me and they recovered N340,000, from me.”
