8 people today appeared before an Osogbo Magistrates’ Court in Osun over the theft of 1,000 chickens from a poultry farm.

The accused include Odebiyi Yinka, 20, Ayoola Samson, 20, Cecilia Ochilla, 35, and Elizabeth Akira, 30.
Others are Oyelami Tajudeen, 30, Regina Philip, 40, Grace Odelia, 35, and Akira Hanna, 24.

The accused and others at large are facing charges bordering on stealing.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Taiwo Adegoke told the court that the accused committed the offence between the months of May, June and July at Erin-Osun, Osogbo.
Adegoke said the accused conspired with others now at large to steal 1, 000 chickens owned by one Mrs Titilayo Akulo.

He said that Odebiyi and Ayoola, who are co-workers at Aluko Poultry Farm, conspired to steal 1, 000 chickens valued at about N1.5 million.

The prosecutor said the accused sold the chickens to the six other persons at the total sum of N1.2 million.
He said the offences contravened Sections 516, 390(9), 383(9) and 427 of the Criminal Code cap 34 Vol.11, Laws of Osun, 2003.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty.
Counsel to the accused, Mrs Bose Dada, prayed the court to grant her clients bail in the most liberal terms.

The Magistrate, Mr Olusola Aluko, granted the accused bail in the sum of N 100,000, with two sureties each in like sum.

Aluko said the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction. He adjourned the case to Nov. 25, for hearing.

  1. It’s long I heard of people stealing chickens. Maybe the large number makes it high profile theft, otherwise it was the local village boys stealing one or two birds to prepare pepper soup and eat in the night and the owners will go identify the feathers belonging to their chicken at the village refuse dump at daybreak…. And will make noise of course since everybody knew who the likely thieves were.
    But to steal 1000 chickens, that is a whole poultry farm and is more than stupid of the thieves because disposing of that number will surely leave a trail for the arrest of the thieves. They wanted to ruin the owner of this farm and I am wondering if it is revenge for non payment of the farm workers’ salaries !!!
