July 17, 2017 – 60 Year Old Woman Arrested For Robbery In Ikorodu Lagos Jailed Today

Mrs Adegunwa Adejoke, a 60-year-old woman was today sentenced to jailed for 6 months for breaking a shop with the intent to steal, an Ikorodu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State ruled on Monday.

Adejoke, a resident of Agbowa-Ikosi in Ikorodu area, had pleaded guilty to the three-count charge of conspiracy, housebreaking and burglary brought against her.

The Magistrate, Mrs A.B. Olagbegi-Adelabu, who gave the verdict, sentenced the woman to six months each on the three counts, totalling 18 months.

She, however, said the sentences would run concurrently.

She said: “Having made a confessional statement, the convict said she was lured into the act by some people who fled the scene.

“Meanwhile, no goods was carted away from the shop but she was caught with a stone which she used to burgle the shop.

“In view of this, not minding the situation, the court has to protect the interest of the state.

“You are hereby sentenced to six months imprisonment on each of the counts which will run consecutively.

“This will teach you a lesson and I hope when you leave the prison, you would have turned a new leaf.”

Earlier, Police Prosecutor Mary Ajiteru told the court that the accused with others still at large were caught on June 29 at 9.00 p.m. breaking a shop belonging to Mr Oladehinde Agbomeji, at Maiyegun Bus Stop in Agbowa-Ikosi, Ikorodu.

“The accused was caught by a security man, while others fled.

“She was taken to the palace of the traditional ruler, but the chiefs directed that she should be taken to the police station.”

The offences contravened Section 305, 308 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.
