A 41-year-old prophetess from the cherubim and seraphim Church, Sola Ajayi, who allegedly stole a Canadian-breed life turkey valued at N30, 000, is to remain behind bars, an Ile Ife Magistrates’ Court in Osun ruled on Monday. She was ordered to be kept in prison custody over his inability to perfect her bail.
Chief Magistrate Olalekan Ijiyode had granted her bail in the sum of N30, 000 with one surety in like sum of which he added that the surety must be a civil servant and should also reside within the court’s jurisdiction.
No civil servant showed up to stand surety for her and the magistrate remanded the prophetess in prison custody until the bail condition was met.
Though the accused pleaded not guilty, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Sunday Osanyintuyi, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Oct. 16 at about 4.00 p.m. at Iloromu Quarters, Mokuro, Ile Ife. Osanyintuyi said the accused stole the life turkey valued at N30, 000, property of a woman, Khadijat Lamidi.
The case was adjourned to Nov. 26 for hearing.
It might look funny but it should not be.
