Uprising Yoruba actress charged with burglary and stealing

An upcoming Yoruba actress and film maker, Yetunde Akilapa, was on Thursday brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates' Court charged with break-in and stealing valuables worth N7 million.
The actress is standing trial on a three-count charge bordering on burglary and stealing to which she pleaded not guilty.

Police Prosecutor Benson Emuerhi told the court that the accused committed the offences on June 27 at No. 14/16, Mutairu St., Shangisha, Ketu, a suburb of Lagos, at 2.10 p.m. According to him, the accused was apprehended while trying to enter the apartment of the complainant, Adeboye Lamidi.

The prosecutor also alleged that the accused on November 16, 2015 at 3.00 p.m. broke into the residence of Oyinlola Tuga by unlocking the door with a master key. Tuga reported that the accused stole jewellery, bags and other valuables worth N7 million.

Ms Akilapa came into the film industry in 2013 and acted in a Yoruba film, Ileri-Oluwa, which brought her to limelight. The actress was earlier reported to be in the news for stealing and breaking into people's homes years ago and has been on the police wanted list for the past three years.
