Man Bags 12 Months Jail Term For Attempting To Steal From Obasanjo


An Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court yesterday sentenced a 33-year-old man, Seun Sowemimo, to 12 months imprisonment for attempting to steal from ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The Magistrate, Mrs Olajumoke Somefun, said that the prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt that the convict was guilty as charged.

Prosecuting ASP Olakunle Shonibare had earlier told the court that Sowemimo scaled the fence into the compound of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta on April 1 with intent to steal.

He explained that immediately he jumped in, he was caught by one of the security guards on duty.
