Miss Akilapa was on Wednesday detained at the Alade Divisional Police headquarters in Somolu, Lagos following a complaint lodged by a complainant, accusing the actress of stealing the 100 master keys found on her.

According to a statement written by her at the police headquarters, it was not the first time the suspect would be accused of stealing.

She said: “There was a day she came home to see my relative and when I opened her bag after she went to the toilet I found a phone that was later found to have been stolen. We seized the phone from her and returned it to the owner despite her denying that she did not steal the phone.”

When the case came up at the Magistrate’s Court in Somolu on Thursday, the police prosecutor, Inspector Anyanwu, told the court that Miss Akilapa was arrested by a mob that accused her of conspiracy and stealing of bunches of keys.

The offence, according to the prosecutor, is punishable under section 383, 516 and 517 criminal code of Lagos state.

In her response to the charge during the court session, the accused, who claimed to be trained by popular actor Abbey Lanre, said:  “I have featured in about five films including Aiyelaba.

“I produced Bunmi Akata which I use a bunch of 100 keys to act. I am also a makeup artist.

“On the day I was arrested, a woman named Mama Ayoola, called me and said that I should bring weaveon for her. I did not know Mama Ayoola was not living at that compound. When I got there, I asked a girl about Mama Ayoola and she directed me to knock on the next door.

“ An Igbo man peeped from the door and said Mama Ayo was not living there. And as I was about going out, the mob pounced on me, searched my bags and found the hundred keys with the weaveon. They later handed me over to the policemen at Alade Divisional headquarters.”

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges and the magistrate, Justice Mrs. E.A. Adekomaya, granted her bail in the sum of N14,000 with two sureties who must own a landed property in Lagos, with evidence of paying tax to Lagos state government.

The case was adjourned till 12 March, 2013, while the defendant was moved to Kirikiri prison in Apapa, Lagos pending when she could perfect her bail conditions.

    What a big shame to Nigeria law and it’s makers. That i have 100 bunch of keys with me means i have stolen them,do u know if they are for project? Now i see that d law in Nigeria is meant for d poor masses alone, what an injustice. A yahoo yahoo should be fined 25million naira or 15yrs in jail,what about those who steal billion of naira in Government house. What a shame to Nigeria law,it’s makers,it’s executors. God will helps us.

    Was she caught during operation or it was just a case of set up by her rival or enemy? Careful investigation should be carried out, if not innocent people will be sent to prison as in the case of some people that are already serving jail terms in our prisons instead of the corrupt politicians. The Judiciary has failed the nation.

    The 1999 federal constitution of d federal republic of Nigeria stated dat a suspect is not a criminal untill proved guilty by a court of law and should not be reprimanded for more dan 24hrs! Isn’t dat law in place again??
    Ask d man y he searched her at d 1st place, i don’t blve such issues should get to d law court, did anybody claim to own d keys?? Is it proven to be stolen properties?? Wat’s d money value of d keys compare to d image of dis innocent woman which is being tarnished?? LOLADE, if u know ur right dey’re all going to pay for it! Dis is deformation of character! D Lord is ur strength and refuge!!!

    Nigeria laws is a set of rules made by the superiors(rich)to be obeyed by the inferiors (poor masses)

    Holding a bunch of keys, was she caught stealing or is it guesswork. Please release the poor girl , when we start to punish those that steal Nations money we can think of punishing her if it is necessary.we can now see that the law is meant for the poor in Nija not the rich, because the richer you are the more immunity you have.

    My question is, does she stole those keys or was she caught opening door with it? If not why the Magistrate shuld take such a drastic dicision against her. I think there is something wrong somewhere.

  29. LEMEK

    July 31, 2013 at 9:32 am

    Sorry, I foregot to ask the second question. What was the content of her charges in court. Was it Stealing of bunch of keys? If so has any person complained of lost of bunch of keys?

    I sincerely thank the mob who did not take laws into their hands this is the most civilise mob I have ever hard of keep it up… As for sending her to prison for what? Imagine the bail condition given to her,,, some jugdes need to go back to school.
