A Man Locked Up In Prison For Stealing Bibles In Ondo State

A 22-year-old man, Seun Ojo, has been remanded in Olokuta prison in Ondo State for allegedly stealing Bibles and a cash sum of N100,000.

The suspect who robbed one Regina Abraham of two Bibles, a Tecno mobile phone and a sum of N100,000, committed the offence on April 28, 2019 at about 12.30pm at Ojomo Estate, Owo, within the magistrate district. The plea of the defendant was not taken when the charge was read to him, as it was further learnt that the Police prosecutor, Sergeant Suleiman Abdullateef, prayed the court to remand the defendant in prison custody pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution.

The magistrate, Mrs Victoria Bob-Manuel who held that the charge was a case of armed robbery, which the court lacked jurisdiction, ordered that the 22-year-old man be remanded in prison pending issuance of a legal advice on the allegation of stealing Bibles and N100,000.
