Man Runs Away From Hotel After Consuming Beer And Pepper Soup Of N21,800

A 23-year-old man, Daniel Isong, who allegedly escaped from a hotel without paying for beer
and pepper soup he consumed, on Thursday appeared before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court.

Isong , whose residential address was not provided , is facing a three-count of obtaining
under false pretences, breach of peace and stealing.

The prosecutor, Insp. Victor Eruada, had told the court that the accused and one other
person at large committed the offences on Sept. 12 at Urban Hotel located on Yaya Street,
Ogba, Lagos. Eruada said the accused fraudulently obtained bottles of beer and plates
of pepper soup worth N21,800 with the promise
to pay after consumption.

He said Isong attempted to escape from the hotel without paying for them.

“He was, however, caught with the help of a waiter who intercepted him, and he was
immediately arrested. The offences contravene Sections 312, 285 and 166 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, according to the
prosecutor. Section 285 provides for three years jail term for stealing.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty. The Magistrate, Mrs G. O. Anifowoshe, granted the
accused bail in the sum of N25, 000 with two sureties in like sum. She said that the surety
must be gainfully employed and should show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the
Lagos State Government. The case has been adjourned till Oct. 16 for mention.
