Ex-Convict Back In Prison For Stealing


A suspect, Wasiu Ayinla, has been arraigned before Ebute Metta Magistrate Court on a two-count charge of stealing and destroying a car window. Ayinla’s cohorts are still at large, according to court documents.

The 31-year-old was accused of stealing an iPad phone valued at N150,000, cosmetic purse valued at N50,000 and another  worth N15,000, all belonging to one Afonughe Pearse.

The incident took place on the 8th of October at Igando Bridge.

Presiding Magistrate Ajibade sentenced Wasiu to two  years imprisonment with hard labour.

The magistrate noted that Wasiu had served two previous jail sentences, a reason for which she didn’t give an option of fine. The magistrate also advised the serial convict to embrace hard work.
