     An 85-year-old woman, Taiwo Ayodeji and Nosiru Isa, 18, on Thursday appeared before an Abeokuta Chief Magistrates' Court charged with stealing a Blackberry phone and other valuables.

The police prosecutor,  Insp. Augustine Ozimini, told the court that the alleged offences were committed on February 23, at about 9 p.m. at Abule Oyun Street, Lafenwa in Abeokuta.

Ozimini said that the octogenarian conspired with the teenager to commit felony, stealing and breaking into the room of one Mr Raheem Olusola.




According to him, apart from the blackberry phone, the accused stole one gold necklace, one palmtop computer, six shirts, shoes, jeans, WAEC and GCE certificates.

He added that N75,000 cash was also missing in the complainant’s room, adding that that "the total value of the items stolen is N244,000.

The police prosecutor said that the alleged offences were contrary to and punishable under Sections 516, 411 and 390 (9) of the Criminal Code of Ogun, 2006.

The accused persons pleaded not guilty to the charges, and the old woman, Ayodeji said, "I was only trying to help him because there was flooding as a result of downpour.

"I don’t have the strength and that is why I called our neighbour who is also his friend (Isa) to help pack his  property  to the backyard.

"Nothing is missing from what we packed, how can the complainant now say that we have stolen his things is what I don’t understand."

She added that her intention was to save property of the complainant from further damage.

"I made several unsuccessful attempts to reach him (complainant) on phone to inform him of the incident,'' she claimed.

The counsel to the accused persons, Mr Michael Itiolu, also said that his clients were innocent of the charges.

He said that the complainant was a sub-tenant to Ayodeji because the apartment was transferred to him by someone who rented it from the defendant.

Itiolu, thereafter, applied for the bail of the accused persons, and gave the assurance that they would not jump bail.

In his ruling, the  Chief Magistrate, Mr Akeem Adenariwo, granted the accused persons bail in the sum of N50,000 each, with one surety each in like sum.

He adjourned the case to May 28, for hearing. (NAN)

why cant they just settle the case out of court since  they have all the properties accounted for and base on their statement they only trying to help the neighbour properties from flooding. i believe the court and the police should tackle more serious issue than spending time and resource on dis kind of case.

I THINK THIS MAMA HAS A GOOD INTENTION.  IF TRULY THERE ARE MISSING ITEMS, THEN THE YOUNG MAN ISA SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE.

I do not trust the 18yrs old boy cause he "might" be responsible for the crime without the old woman knowing. I certainly can't understand why an 80yrs old woman would want to steal those items when she can barely use them. It's either the 18yrs old boy stole those items without the old woman's knowledge, or the complainant is lying and looking for an opportunity to extort money, blackberry and other stuffs from the old woman. But if the old woman is in anyway guilty of the crime in her heart, then she's got some serious explanation to do when she meets God cos her time is almost up. Weird story!

@masco, lanudja & emmyboss read the story before making their comment. It really baffles me that some people make comment without reading the story. They just  make comment base on the tittle. Alway read before making comment. What do you think an old woman of 85years will do with such fone? The old woman has good intention, she just only being accused.
