    Justice O.O. Odumosu of the Magistrate Court who issued the sentenced said the convicts were workers on a farm located in Ilewo, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

    Akinleye and Adewole were arraigned on two counts of felony and stealing and were sentenced to six months imprisonment each for the first count and one-year imprisonment each for the second count.

    According to the prosecutor, Olakunle Shonibare, the convicts committed the offences on January 24, 2023, contravened Sections 516(1) and 382(2) of the Criminal Code Laws of Ogun State.

    The charge read: “That you, Akinleye Adegoke, Adewole Adediran and others at large on January 24, 2023 at about 12noon at Abidelep Farm and Agro-Service Limited, Ilewo, Orile, Abeokuta in the magisterial district did conspire to commit felony and thereby committed an offence contrary and punishable under Section 516(1) of the Criminal Laws of Ogun State.
