79 year old landlady docked for allegedly breaking into tenant’s room

The Police on Monday arraigned a 79-year old landlady, Beatrice Olabisi, in an Iyaganku Senior Magistrates’ Court, Ibadan, over alleged breaking into her tenant’s room.

Olabisi is facing one-count charge of break-in.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Oluseye Akinola, told the court that the defendant on December 11 at about 10 a.m. at Alafia Street, Mokola area of Ibadan, broke in and illegally entered a tenant’s room.

Akinola said the defendant entered the apartment occupied by Robert Michael, her tenant, with intention to steal.

He added that the offence contravened Section 411 (1) of the Criminal Code Cap 38 Vol. II Laws of Oyo State 2000.

However, the defendant pleaded not guilty and her Counsel, Babatunde Ajibola, asked the court to admit his client on bail in the most liberal term, considering her age.

The Senior Magistrate, Mrs. Munirat Giwa-Babalola, granted bail to the defendant on self recognition and adjourned the case until February 22 for hearing. (NAN)
