IDOMA VOICE reports that the accused claimed the owner of the shop owed him a balance of N780 but refused to give him back, which provoked him to break into the store to collect the items.
The clerk admitted taking the items without the owner’s prior knowledge Friday night.
Mr. Ashaga, owner of the store, however denied ever owing the accused any money.

"I don't owe him anything, if I am to owe him, he came to my shop this morning to buy cigarette but never said a word about what he did until I discovered that he was the one who broke into my shop last night because he forgot one of his foot wears inside the shop," he told IDOMA VOICE.
