On Tuesday, two teenagers, Ibrahim Lukman and Olatunji Lawal, were brought before the Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, for stealing a sewing machine and other items.

In their separate pleas, Mr Lukman admitted to committing the crime while Mr Lawal pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, Samuel Ishola, told the court that Messrs Lukman and Lawal committed the offences on February 1 at Okiti Lane, Isale-Eko, Lagos Island.
