Three Workers Docked For Stealing N72.8m In Adamawa

Three suspects were on trial in Adamawa State over an alleged N72,818 million belonging to a company in the Ganye Local Government Area of the state.

The three are being arraigned before Chief Magistrate I in Yola, the state capital on charges of stealing the company’s money.

The defendants, Abdulrashed Waziri (36), Richard Moses (42) and Uche Sunday (32), were charged with theft, misappropriation, and criminal breach of trust.

Abdulrashed and the other two defendants are accused of stealing N72,818 million from their employer, Saro Agro-Science Limited, which is based in the Ganye LGA.

According to the prosecution counsel,  Abdulrashed, a storekeeper, Richard, a market sales agent, and Uche, a van sales representative, conspired and committed the crime.


The prosecuting police officer informed the court that Olajide Oladeji, the company’s regional business chief, reported the incident to the Police in Adamawa.

ASP Zakka stated that Olajide revealed that on September 25, 2023, Caleb Akinteye, the Location Manager monitoring the Ganye Office, discovered that the affected employees stole the company’s money.

He added that it was established that the defendants sold the company’s products and received N48 million, which was not paid into the company’s account, and that after auditing its stocks at the warehouse, management discovered that over N24 million in stocks were missing, bringing the total to N72.818 million.

During their arraignment before Judge Muhammed Buba, all of the accused pleaded not guilty to the allegations.
