Aigbokhan said that the defendant used the sum of N900, 000 belonging to his employer, one Mr Yemi Liasu, to play Bet Naija game.

According to him, the defendant used the money without the consent of his employer, adding that the defendant acted in a manner likely to cause breach of the peace.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 168(d) and 287(7) of the Criminal Law of Lagos, 2015.

The Magistrate, Miss K. A. Ariyo, adjourned the case until July 12 for review of facts and sentencing.
