Man Sentenced To 45 Years Imprisonment for Stealing Governor's Phone

An Osogbo High Court yesterday sentenced a 31-year-old man, Kelvin Igha-Igbodalo to 45 years imprisonment without an option of fine for stealing a Sony Ericson phone belonging to Osun State Governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola. Details after the cut:

Igha-Igbodalo is alleged to have stolen Aregbesola’s phone during the swearing-in ceremony of the governor in 2010. The convict used the phone to dupe many unsuspecting people by directing them to pay money into a particular bank account on pretext that it was the governor's directive.
The ex-convict was eventually arrested and charged with six counts of conspiracy, obtaining properties by false pretence, stealing, impersonation and advance free fraud. Igha-Igbodalo pleaded guilty to the charges slammed against him and Justice Oyejide Falola sentenced him to 45 years imprisonment to run concurrently without an option of fine.
 The ex-convict had earlier served six years imprisonment at Ikoyi prison in Lagos over a murder charge leveled against him. According to the charge sheet, “Kelvin and others now at large in May 24th, 2011 impersonated the governor by using his phone with intent to defraud, and obtained the sum of N500,000 from his royal majesty, Oba Gabriel Adekunle Aromolaran, Owa-Obokun of Ijesha land”. Counsel to the convict, Mr. Ameachi Ngwu, prayed the court to commit the convict to community service.
So if this man is sentenced to 45 years imprisonment, why then would Alamieyeseigha be given a pat on the back and sent home to eat fried egg?Make una take time o government, we can see all the mago mago going on o and soon God go catch una. Msheew! Abeg make una no arrest me o na joke I dey joke.
