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.

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.
