OSUN: Two men docked for jumping fence, stealing

Two men — Adeniyi Dada and Isaac Samson — who allegedly scaled the fence of a house in the night to steal some household items, were on Thursday brought before an Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court.
The accused were, however, granted bail in the sum of N200, 000 each and two sureties in like sum. The Magistrate, Mrs Fatima Sodamade, who gave the ruling, said the sureties must be resident within the court’s jurisdiction and should show evidence of tax payments to the Osun Government.
The accused — Dada, 20, and Samson,19 — are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.
The accused however, pleaded not guilty to the charge. Police Prosecutor Adekunle Bukola told the court that the accused committed the offences on March 8 at 11.25 p.m. at Zone VII, Ayekale in Osogbo.
Bukola alleged that the accused conspired and broke into the apartment of the complainant, Adekunle Wasiu by jumping the fence of the house to steal some household items.
“They were, however, apprehended,” he said, adding that the offences contravened Sections 413 and 509 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun, 2003.
The lawyer to the accused, Mr Dada Abosede, urged the court to grant him bail on liberal terms.
The case has been adjourned to Sept.11 for hearing.
