Fashion designer arraigned for damaging customer’s clothes

A 26-year-old man, Mohammed Dieng, was on Friday arraigned in a Karu Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, for allegedly damaging a customer’s clothes worth N138,000. He was granted N150,000 bail.

The defendant, a fashion designer at Banex Plaza, was tried on a two-count charge of criminal breach of trust and cheating, which contravened Sections 312 and 322 of the Penal Code.

He denied committing the offences.

The judge, Mr. Hassan Ishaq, also ordered the defendant to produce a reliable surety in like sum and adjourned the matter until July 19 for hearing.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Mamud Ismail, had told the court that one Mercy Ibeh of Garki, Abuja, reported the matter at the Maitama Police Station on May 15.

He said that sometime in August 2015, the complainant had entrusted three pairs of clothes to the defendant to sew at the cost of N138,000.

He alleged that the complainant paid the defendant N25,000 as advance payment.

Ismail added that when the complainant went to collect the clothes on the due date, she discovered that it was not the design she agreed to and paid for.

He said  the defendant had damaged the complainant’s clothes beyond repair.
