Well, that is the lot of Madam Bolanle Olorunwole, who was remanded in prison custody after she was dragged to an Ile-Ife Magistrates’ Court in Osun State over an allegation of house breaking and stealing.
The 60-year-old woman was allegedly arrested on the spot and could have been lynched if not for some sympathizers who advised she be handed over to the police.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs Risikat Olayemi, gave the order that Bolanle be remanded in prison custody after refusing to take the plea of the accused.
She said the accused would be granted bail after the police had completed their investigations, reasoning that granting her bail will jeopardise police investigations.
The accused, whose address is unknown, is facing four counts of conspiracy, housebreaking, intent to commit felony and stealing.
The prosecutor, ASP Supo Adeyemo, told the court that the accused with others still at large, committed the offences around 2 pm on October 12 at Ikeji Quarters, Ile-Ife. Adeyemo said the accused conspired with others and broke into the house of the complainant, Mr Oluseyi Famuyiwa, and stole some items.
He listed the stolen items as three water closets, three standing water basins, kitchen cabinet and 50 packs of tiles all valued at N132, 000.
