A suspect who was arraigned before an Osogbo Chief
Magistrates’ Court for pant theft, disclosed that
he returned the pants he stole after five minutes.
According to the suspect who was sober in court, his
conscience did not allow him to rest after he went to
the house of one Gift Sunday located in the Agowande
area of Osogbo around 1am and stole her pants, which
were left to dry on the line outside.
One of the charges against him read;
“THAT YOU, OPEYEMI ADELEKE, ON MONDAY,
JANUARY 21, 2019, AROUND 1AM IN THE AGOWANDE AREA OF OSOGBO SEIZED THE PANTS OF ONE GIFT SUNDAY WITHOUT HER CONSENT AND FOR REASONS BEST KNOWN TO YOU.”
The suspect who was given time to defend himself,admitted to stealing the pants but added that he returned them after five minutes.
“I ACTUALLY STOLE THE PANTS, BUT WITHIN FIVE MINUTES, I RETURNED THEM. PLEASE PARDON ME,” ADELEKE SAID.
The presiding magistrate, Modupe Awodele who adjourned the case till February 2, 2019 ordered that the accused be remanded in the Ilesha Prison till February 2, 2019, for ruling on the bail application.
