Rising yoruba actress and filmmaker, Yetunde Akilapa, was today brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court charged with the break-in and stealing of valuables worth N7 million.
The actress, 32, who lives at No.7, Oladelola St., Ketu area of Lagos, is standing trial on a three-count 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, Mr Adeboye Lamidi.
Lamidi alleged that he was in his sitting room when he noticed someone was trying to open the door to his apartment with a key from outside. Akilapa used a different key to unlock the door of the complainant house but was caught in the act.
He said, “l peeped through the door hole and l saw the accused trying to open my door with a key.” The prosecutor also alleged that the accused on Nov. 16, 2015, at 3.00 p.m. broke into the residence of Oyinlola Tuga by unlocking the door with a master key.
Tuga, who lives at No. 39A, Ayodele Okeowo St., Gbagada Soluyi in Lagos, reported that the accused stole jewellery, bags and other valuables worth N7 million. “Tuga alleged that after raising an alarm that his house had been burgled, his neighbours told him that they saw the accused parked her car with registration no. MUS 689 CZ in front of the complainant’s house. “They challenged her and found the stolen items and a hundred bunch of keys on her. “The accused was apprehended and handed over to the police at Ifako Police Station,” he said.
Akilapa came into the film industry in 2013 and acted in a Yoruba film, “Ileri-Oluwa’’, which brought her to the 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.

K1 To Sponsor Kid Artist’s Education
In what looks like a divine arrangement, Fuji Music Legend, King Wasiu Ayinde Mashal, popularly known as K1 De Ultimate has thrown his weight behind Oluwatobi Ilelolawa, the 12 year-old Primary Six pupil, who sketched President Muhammadu Buhari’s portrait with pen (Biro) without alteration few days ago.
Less than an hour after THISDAY Newspapers’ Brands and Marketing Editor, Raheem Akingbolu published the story of the boy on his Facebook page, K1, through his publicist, Kunle Rasheed, reached out to the writer. K1, the father of modern Fuji Music said he was touched by the story of the boy and offered to sponsor his post-primary education to the university level.
K1 described the boy as a raw talent that must be guided, supported and not allowed to waste.
“I was touched when the story was brought to my notice and I see it as one of those things one can do to impact the society. Education is key to success and who knows the boy we are talking about may be a governor or President in the making. He may become another Ben Enwonwu, Bruce Onobrakepya, Wole Soyinka or an international Artist of repute in the future. If the society fails to give him the needed support now, posterity will not forgive us. This is the time to lift a hand and groom a talent for posterity.”
Meanwhile, arrangements are being made to introduce the promising artist to his new benefactor and perfect ways through which his mentorship and sponsorship would be handled.
Na Una Papa Get Stroke, No Be Me — Nollywood Actor Mr Ibu Blasts Rumor Peddlers
Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has debunked trending social media reports that he has been plagued with stroke.
The new media was awash on Thursday with reports that the 57-year-old iconic actor was hit by a mysterious stroke shortly after he returned from a trip to Owerri, Imo State.
The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, was even quoted as saying that “the actor was fast recovering”.
The sad news generated deep concerns from industry watchers, especially fans of the actor, calling for prayers and support for him.
However, in a latest video published on his Instagram Page, Mr Ibu, who is seen “loving up with his wife”, flayed the stroke report, saying he has handed those peddling the rumour to God.
He said: “Oh God! People are saying that I have stroke, that I am down with stroke. Why?
“How can you announce somebody’s sickness and you have many, you don’t even announce one.
“I don’t have any stroke please. This is my wife, my humble wife. Well, we hand over everything to God.
“I have been receiving calls from across the world, and I don’t know who is spreading this false news about me. I don’t know what they are saying. Na their papa get stroke.”
