This is a sad story of Nollywood actress, Yetunde Akilapa who has been branded a thief due to a strange voice she claims pushes her to steal.
Yetunde who is better known for stealing than she is for acting, once had a close shave with death during an encounter with mobs sometimes back around Magodo axis of Lagos, when she let herself into the home of a complete stranger to rob the house.Many would have expected her to learn a grave lesson from the experience and turn a new leaf after her self-publicised spiritual cleansing from this unbecoming habit.
Her recent inglorious adventure to steal an iPhone from an institute where she was recently receiving training as a makeup artist somewhere in Fola Agoro, Yaba axis of Lagos has led to her being excommunicated from the Yoruba genre of movie industry due to her unrepentant penchant for stealing.
It is alleged that Yetunde had snuck back into the premises after close of work with the aid of a master key to steal from the shop owned by an upwardly mobile woman; who recently received a consignment of goods from abroad; ranging from bags, iphones, ipads, laptops, and shoes.
The notorious Nollywood robber opened the lock and took choice items of iPhones, iPads, and laptops.
Luck, however ran out of her while trying to escape with her loot as she was once again, caught.
As always, while pleading for mercy, the usual culprit was to be blamed, the devil and the mysterious voice she hears in her head that led her on.
Yetunde, who just bought a Toyota Matrix car, pleaded for mercy adding that she didn’t know what came over her.
Having none of the cock and bull story, the shop owner; not wanting to take laws into her own hands, invited officers from CMS Police Stations to effect her arrest.
She was however, not happy with the kids gloves with which the case was being handled as two days later, Yetunde was seen again on the streets moving freely.
The shop owner then took it a notch higher by calling in officers from the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) and within a twinkling of an eye, Yetunde was whisked away and has remained in police custody pending the time she would be charged to court.
She is cooling her heels and light fingers behind bars but has been scheduled to be charged to court for theft and burglary.
Saddened by this constant embarrassment, Bose, Yetunde Akilapa’s sister, took the blame to their mother, whose clothe she tore in public glare; openly accusing her placing a curse on Yetunde.
