Court Jails 50-years-Old Man Over Chewing Gum Theft

Oluwagbemiro Ogunseyi, a former in-law of Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife-Ife, was brought before an Ondo State Magistrate Court on Tuesday for alleged forgery and illegal conversion of N26 million.

Ogunseyi, a brother of Naomi, the ex-wife of the Ife king, allegedly committed the crime in September 2019. He has since been charged with three counts of forgery and criminal conversion.

It was claimed that he had altered the Atibiti Faaye Family’s receipt.


Sections 467 and 390(8)(b) of Ondo State’s 2006 Criminal Code Cap. 37, Vol. 1, Laws, provide penalties for the offences.

According to the charges, “That you, Ogunseyi Akinfolarin, fraudulently convert the sum of N26m being proceeds of sale of plots of land belonging to Atibuti Oni at Akure, Ondo State.”
DSP Osoobu Itunu, the prosecuting counsel, stated that the case was ready to be opened because every witness was prepared to give a statement.
