Twins, Taye and Kehinde Taiwo, 22, and their younger brother, Israel Taiwo, 20, on Tuesday appeared before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court charged with N365,000 theft.

The defendants, all residents of 19, Odunbaku St., Iju- Ishaga, Lagos State, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and stealing.

The Prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the offences were committed on November 11, 2023, at 18, Ogooluwa St., Iju- Ishaga in Lagos State.

Akeem said Taye, a hairstylist, allegedly stole an ATM card belonging to his employer, Mrs Jumoke Oreofero, and withdrew N365,000 from her account.

The prosecutor said the hairstylist thereafter fled from his work place, but when he was later apprehended named his co-defendants as accomplices.

The offences, Akeem said, contravened Sections 287 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Bola Osunsanmi, granted the defendants N50,000 bail each, and with two sureties each in like sum.

Osunsanmi adjourned the case until February 8 for mention.
