Man Asked To Pay Fine Or Be Jailed 6 Months For Stealing Joghurt

An Ejigbo magistrate court has sentenced one Morufu Wasiu to six months imprisonment for stealing yoghurt and other items in one Mr. Joseph Ejikeme’s house in Lagos.

The prosecutor, Supol Kenneth Asibor (ASP) said the suspect and others who are still at large, jumped into the compound of Ejikeme at about 04:15pm on May 23, 2019, and stole Holladian yoghurt, pack of Pepsi, pack of Eva water, pack of Happy Hour juice, pack of Eva milk and other assorted juice of various makers all valued at N85,800.

According to Asibor, the suspect and his accomplice packed all the items inside a truck and took them away to an area called Dustbin, where the Hausas usually sell scraps at Pipeline, Ijegun.

He said: “immediately the Hausas saw them at that odd hours pushing the truck with goods inside, they knew it was stolen goods and they started taking the goods one after the other and started drinking, though it was a fasting period.

“This alerted the members of OPC in the area to what was going on and they arrested Morufu While others ran away at the sight of the OPC.

The case was handed over to the police and the suspect was charged to court on a two count charge for burglary and stealing.
It was discovered that the suspect has been in the habit of stealing through his confessional statements, and that he came all the way from Ogun state in Totowu area with others at large.”

The suspect, having pleaded guilty to the 2 count charges, was sentenced to 6-month imprisonment by Magistrate T. O. Shomade, with option of N20,000 fine.
