NAN reports that the Lagos State Government charged Sousa with theft.
According to the charge sheet, the defendant allegedly committed the offence between May and December 2011 in the premises of Dominos Stores, Alagomeji, Lagos.
The lead state prosecutor, Mrs Rotimi Odutola, alleged that the N50.2million which belonged to the supermarket and cinema was given to her by Mr Micheal Murray-Bruce.
The prosecution said that the money was for the renewal of the lease of a property situated at No. 1 Habour Road, Apapa, Lagos which belonged to NFS Food and Cold Storage Ltd.
The offence, the prosecution said, contravened the provisions of Section 390(9) of the Criminal Code Laws Cap C17, Vol. 2 of Lagos State 2003.
