The two suspects were remanded in Ile-Ife Correctional Centre on Tuesday after they pleaded guilty before the Chief Magistrate, Ishola Omisade.

During this hearing, the prosecutor, Jacob Akintunde, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on February 3, 2021, when the owner of the poultry was not around.

According to him, Rafiu invited the 1st defendant, Saheed, who had been sacked from the poultry to carry out the operation.

The prosecutor further stated that the stolen bags of maize were found in the defendants’ house.

He said that the first accused person was a driver in the organization, while the second defendant was a worker in the poultry.

According to the charger sheet, the offence is contrary to section 516,39(9) of criminal code Cap 34 vol 2 law of Osun state, 2003.

Meanwhile, the defendants pleaded guilty to the court charger levelled against them by the police.

The duo told the Court that they only stole four bags of maize from the poultry, and they didn’t know anything about the chickens.

In his ruling, Magistrate Ishola Omisade remanded the accused person in Ile-Ife Correctional Centre. He subsequently adjourned the case to March 16, 2021, for hearing.
