    Oluremi Olayinka is a disgrace to womanhood, its in this same Nigeria a woman of honour returned N12 million left in an airport toilet to the owner. Oluremi Olayinka deserves the sentence, infact it should have been 566 and not 266 years. She’s an embarrassment to her family.

      Ayo you are an ****. There is no logic in your argument. No one condones what she did but to jail someone for that long affects a whole lot more than your***** mind can imagine. I bet because she is a commoner she deserves no mercy from her peers like you, but if na one big man steal money you no go worry. ******

    Wait a minute! 266 years for #8 Million Naira. Does the punishment justify the crime?. Some Nigerian Judges lack ability to use their cleverness when interpreting laws. I don’t believe this is under sentencing guide line of Nigeria Court. Even if it is, you don’t just mount on the bench and pronounce any judgment just because you are a judge. I’m not supporting this lady in question in fact, she must be punished for the crime she has committed but that punishment is too harsh . There are some other things to consider when passing out judgment like this, for instance the judge need to consider if the woman has committed any crime before or is she a first time offender? Is she a potential risk to the society? Has she been co-operating with the law enforcement on this case? If you give this young woman 266 years, how many years are you going to give high profile thieves in Jonathan’s cabinet such as Madueke, Stella Odua and others? Judge Akinyemi you need to go back to the drawing board.

    266 years is too much for this offence it is more or less life in prison

    Judge Akinyemi must be foolish in his judgement. If other thieves and corrupt nigerians should be jailed this way, I would have been President of this country bcos every rich man could have died by now.

    It obviously states that sentence to run concurrently. Meaning shes only going to serve 21 years . serves her right for stealing .
