Dec 19, 2012 – Woman Jailed For Stealing Husband’s Gown, Wig

A Kubwa Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday sentenced a 34-year old woman, Elizabeth Akinagbe, to three months imprisonment for stealing.

The Magistrate, Malam Ibrahim Mohammed, in his judgment, sentenced the woman to one month imprisonment on each of the three counts of house breaking, theft and criminal force.

Mohammed, who said the sentence would run concurrently, however, gave the convict an option of N20,000 fine.

The convict was arraigned on 23 May 23, following complaints by a lawyer, Victor Olise, a resident of Jayi village, Arab Road in Kubwa.

Prosecutor Lucas Ephraim told the court that Olise reported that on 19 April 19, the convict broke into his house and stole his wig and gown.

Ephraim said the convict also stole female underwear and family photographs, adding that the offences contravened Sections 346, 287 and 288 of the Penal Code.

The convict had pleaded not guilty to the charges.

She told the court that she was formerly married to the complainant, adding: “I had three children for him, but since our separation, he has denied me access to the children.

“I took his wig and gown to compel him to allow me see my children, but I didn’t take any other item from his house,’’ she said.

Olise, however, told the court that the convict abandoned the children with him.

“When she abandoned the children, I had no other choice than to take them to my people in the village for adequate care,’’ Olise said.

    Olise should know that his former wife going to jail will have adverse effect on the children because one day the children will find out and will not be happy with their father sending their mother to jail.
    Just pay the Twenty Thousand Naira fine on her behalf and warn her squarely
