Micheal case was a civil matter that was given criminal colouration.
In the IPO’s Investigation Report, he admitted that Micheal was negligent in handling the Keke given to him by the Complainant on hire purchase but the IPO went ahead to charge him for stealing.
All the parties stated in their Statements to the Police that Micheal parked the said Keke in his compound before it was stolen. Our Lawyer was prepared to take the Complainant before the Prosecutor informed the Court that the Complainant had resolved to withdraw the charges. Micheal was discharged yesterday after the Nominal Complainant informed the Court that he had resolved to withdraw the Charge and he did.
